[ANN] RideMe 1.0 (Rails IDE for Windows) 1.0

Just wanted to let all those Windows devs out there know that RideMe 1.0
dropped over the weekend.

http://www.projectrideme.com/

If you’ve never used RideMe before, here are some highlights:

  • 100% free, open source, and not built on top of anything else. You
    just need Ruby 1.8.2 and .NET 2.0 installed.

  • Mission in life is to be lightweight and very fast. This is not a
    general purpose Ruby editor, it’s an IDE for getting your Rails work
    done.

  • File-system based approach. No messy workspace files or extra RIDE-ME
    specifics junking up your directory.

  • Syntax highlighting for Ruby Files, Views, Layouts, JavaScript, SQL,
    CSS, and HTML.

  • Familiar Visual Studio-style tabbed document editor.

  • Model / Member drop downs for easy movability in code. (Think Visual
    Studio above your code file)

  • Code folding for Ruby files

  • script/console built into the IDE (think Visual Studio “Immediate
    Mode”)

  • Server Error notification (template errors will actually open the
    view file and go to the LOC)

  • Internal web browser (optional)

Thanks!

I can’t seem to download the file. When I click download it opens up
the dialog box and then just hangs.

Hey Stuart,

What browser are you using?

Any other details you can provide would be extremely helpful as well.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

Michael,

I tried it again and I think it worked this time. I’m using the
latest version of Firefox 1.5.0.6
However it did choke initially and then seemed to have downloaded,
1.67mb. I need to install .net framework.

Stuart

Thank you Michael it’s installed and working. I like the code
snippets, that’s a great thing to have.
Keep up the good work. Honestly I’ve been using RadRails, but it’s a
dog on both my 2.5ghz as well as my centrino laptop.

Stuart

Oh very cool! We want to actually add some functionality to the snippets
so you can tab between variables in the snippet kind of like TextMate.
Hopefully that’ll make one of the upcoming versions.

Works for me…? Let me know if you’re still having problems.

Michael,

Not to steal anyones thunder, but in addition to RideME, there’s also
another cool lightweight .net 2.0 based editor also at

It has a similar function set…and the background is black :slight_smile:

Kudos to both these projects. I keep flipping back and forth between
the
two. Who’d have thought that more choice could be worse for me :slight_smile:
