Best IDEs for Ruby on Rails

What are your favorite IDEs for Ruby on Rails? Are there any good IDEs
that IMMEDIATELY flag problems the way Eclipse does in Android
development? Given the importance of testing, I’d like to use a tool
that
immediately and automatically flags problems.

Hi jason, There are several IDEs available for Rails development. You
can
try Aptana RedRails, JetBrains RubyMine. But most of the developer are
following sublimetext , eMac, TextMate,Gedit,VIM i.e. light weight
software.

Hope this helpful to you.

Most rails developers (I believe) recommend not to use an IDE, but to
use a good editor with ruby parsing and project management
capabilities (such as jedit, but there are many others) and to use the
command line for the rest. An IDE just isolates you from the command
line so that when something goes wrong it can be difficult to analyse.
Also you will generally find it easier to get help if you are using
the command line.

We are using RubyMine. if i need something lightweight I use Vim or
TextMate. RM has the ability to run the server, to debug and step
through code, git integration - lots of great features. It’s a memory
hog (I boosted my Mac up to 16G RAM) but the newer versions have been
better than the older ones.

FWIW

I’ve bought RubyMine. It has very convinient tools for working with code
but better work with RM on fast computer.

I’m using RubyMine and it’s great. Here is a video posted by a friend of
Michael H. who compares RubyMine to Sublime Text if you’re
interested…

Redcar completely suits me as a free highlighting editor with a good
file
browser and multiple display tabs and side by side editing.

Take a look to Aptana (http://www.aptana.com/) and Komodo (
http://www.activestate.com/komodo-ide)

i use RubyMine, it’s cool!
it support rails3 and coffeescript, and many feature~

RubyMine 5.0.2 Fabulous IDE, excellent value for money, superb debugging
with code coverage and VCS integration, stack analysis, object tree
view,
model diagrams, db integration and lots more.

I think the obsession with the command line just overwhelms you with
detail, a bit like looking at the hex generated by assembler. Do not be
fooled by this obsessive elitism.

Give it a try free, also the support is really quick.

This might help?

http://docs.sublimetext.info/en/latest/reference/build_systems.html#file-format

When I was using an IDE for this, it was Aptana, which has a shell built
in
(and most of the other standard extra IDE gubbins, which if you’re
otherwise happy with ST, you probably don’t want). Code completion is
good
also.

Personally, I like running commands from the shell, but I suppose it’s a
matter of taste.

I use sublime. I think it’s very cool.

Sublime is very cool, particularly with some neat features such as
symbol
lookup, and plugins (rspec, haml / slim, coffeescript, etc)

I have tried many editors / IDEs and I always fall back to sublime text.

How is the RSpec support? Do you still have to use the cmd line to run
rspec, or can you do so directly from editor? I am finding this
impossible to setup on sublime text 3. Aside from that, ST3 has been
really nice.

Sublime Text is quite impressive, but I could not switch to it after
having
used emacs for a while. I’m aware emacs is rather difficult to grasp, at
least at the beginning, but it’s so customizable and great for
productivity
I sincerely doubt I’ll ever use anything else for any programming
language.

However, emacs does not come with rails-specific plugins and it requires
some tweaking before it can be used as a complete development
environment.

I use tmux+vim and it as good as any IDE and more customizable.

A good free replacement for RubyMine I found Netbeans with JRuby. You
should give it a try!

Tmux + Vim + Some plugins - It’s better than any IDE.

I also use Vim. I couldn’t imagine using any other editor.

Tim Pope has some great Ruby/Rails plugins for Vim on Github.

Rubymine is very good to start, but it is heavy.
