Please, someone…point me to a decent, lightweight IDE. All i want
is syntax coloring. I’m thinking notepad++ here. Anyone have a better
solutions? Thanks. RVince
Emacs. It has everything. After several years using it now I
couldn’t imagine using something else.
I IRC with it, I compile with it, I shell out with it, I run mongrel
with it, I build Rails apps with it, the list goes on and on. Takes a
few days to get over the initial learning curve but then it’s all
downhill from there, well worth the time investment.
Get yourself an Emacs cheat sheet and have a go. You’ll never be so
happy to not touch your mouse.
