Increasingly, I’m using NetBeans for Ruby and RoR. On the other hand,
for Windows apps using Ruby, I’m using WideStudio (it supports a lot of
other platforms too).

As said so many times Aptana and eclipse on XP and Linux.

I am still confused which IDE to choose among freeride, aptana,
radrails ,netbeans which is most feature rich ?

IDEs are personal. You can use anything that works for you. I’d
recommend trying out a couple. For the longest time, i was just using a
text editor with syntax highlighting for Ruby.

Netbeans 6.0 is a better IDE. Have support to Ruby On Rails and Ruby.

Amount of features != quality of IDE.

My recommendation, as well as of others, download a few IDEs, and test
drive
them to find out with which one you are most comfortable. That will be
the
best IDE you can find: Yours.

I personally use NetBeans[0], for work across multiple files, and
SciTE[1]
for quick-and-dirty scripts, and irb[2] for quick
prototyping/proof-of-concept work.

[0] http://deadlock.netbeans.org/hudson/job/ruby/ contains the build I
use
and frequently update.
[1] http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html comes with the Windows
Ruby-One-Click installer, and is crossplatform (I’ve used it on Windows
and
Linux)
[2] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interactive_Ruby_Shell Ruby’s own shell

Emacs is always worth a shout - works the same on windows, linux,
terminal and OS X and has good Ruby and Rails support. There is a bit
of messing about to get it working though, but you can always read my
tutorial:

if you are interested!

Well … everyone has their own favorite, so you’ll get lots of answers.
Most of the ones I’ve seen recommended here are open-source, but I think
you’ll find that quite a few people who use Macs think of TextMate as
more of an IDE than a text editor and would recommend it over the open
source ones. My own personal favorite is Komodo, but that’s neither open
source nor free.

As far as a feature comparison chart is concerned, I can’t recall seeing
one anywhere. Eclipse (with plugins) is probably the most full-featured
of the open-source IDEs.

Personally I currently use vim with a bunch of plugins.

I tried out radrails this weekend, but found that it just performs
horribly on the hardware I’ve got available. Part of me thinks I
SHOULD be using it since I actually worked on Eclipse and it’s
predecessors at IBM, but…

I’ve got my eyes on a Macbook, hopefully in the not too distant
future, so I’ll probably follow the textmate herd.

I guess it depends on which OS your using. If your using MacOSX then I
might recommend textmate, for windows there is a IDE that is very
similar to textmate called “e” which works ok. The one I use and prefer
though for windows, or linux is Komodo. It has a very nice color scheme
editor and it allows you to make snippets for code short cuts along with
a really cool Regexp helper tool. It also does smart formatting and auto
completing.

I use always Arachno IDE for ruby and also for rails development. It
has a big potential but supports mainly windows (linux version is too
old). Eclipse is for me too big. Vim and Emacs are complex to setup.

I do all my Rails programming in Komodo as well, but I’m also one
of the developers on it. So when I see something isn’t working well
I can turn around quickly and put out a fix. The team has also
implemented automatic updates, using the same mechanism that
Firefox and Thunderbird use, since it’s a Mozilla app as well.

Komodo Edit is a free-as-in-beer version, and has all the basic
Rails support except for a debugger. And while it isn’t an
open source project, most of it is implemented in Python,
JavaScript, CSS, and XUL, and we ship all that, and accept
patches.

They released a new version of the ruby plugin for intellij today. It
adds a lot of functionality/features and comes with the stability and
usability of intellij.

you can download a trial of the next version of intellij here

The ruby plugin (v.0.2) can be found here
http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/RUBYDEV/IntelliJ+IDEA+Ruby+Plugin

make sure to give it a try. I find when doing rails apps i can “develop
with pleasure!”

Back in my day, we didn’t have echos. And we liked it that way. :wink:
