Best editor/environment for Windows?


#1

What’s the best editor or environment for Rails development in Windows
Vista? I’ve been doing Rails development personally on my Mac at home.
But
now that we’re going to start using it at work I need to find a good
setup
on our Windows desktops.

Chris,

 I use RadRails.  It is now owned(?)/developed by Aptana:

http://www.aptana.com.

It is based on Eclipse.

Not sure about any others. I can recommend some sites for setting up
Subversion for version control if you are interested also.

If you are using Visual Studio, you may want to try Ruby In Steel:
editing, debugging, project management etc. Two editions - free and
commercial. The commercial edition also has a very fast debugger (drag
and drop watch variables, hover+drill+down debug inspectors, call stack,
step into/out/over) and full analytical IntelliSense.

How can I add/generate more models/controllers?
Just via console? No way to do this into Aptana interface?

thanks

When I have to turn my PC on, I use the ‘e’ editor, tortoiseSVN, mysql
command line

I maintain Eclipse for Rails, a package similar to RadRails / Aptana,
but
customizable. I don’t market it too much (too afraid of what that would
mean
in terms of supporting it) but I am astounded by how many people
actually
like using it. I’ve gotten mostly positive feedback
http://www.napcs.com/products/rails/Eclipse/index.htm

I personally use this, but I use e (www.e-texteditor.com) a lot too.
You
have to have tortoiseSVN though, it’s one of the best ways to use and
manage
a repository.

I wrote a shortcut for O’Reilly that will show you how to get a solid
development environment running on Windows.

Sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but I figured it would help some
people.

Thanks for the replies. I like the concept of e-texteditor, but it
sucks to
pay for a beta product. I’ll have to play around with the Eclipse
plug-in
solutions and see what works out.

Try Netbeans dev version. It has excellent support for ruby and rails.
You
can get a slimmed down ruby only version of Netbeans here:

I’m not sure what the exact details are, but I think you can still use
it
after the trial expires.
