Folks here on the forum have been very helpful this past month with
helping me work through nitty-gritty Ruby issues in relation to syntax
highlighting etc. for our ED for Windows IDE. I finally released ED
V4.30 last week, which I feel delivers more accurate and comprehensive
support for Ruby than other editors, at least those I looked at.
You can quickly get a good overview of what ED offers to Ruby developers
by reading “Write Ruby code faster with ED for Windows”
This also includes a short critique on Ruby.
ED4W is a full featured Programmer’s Editor/IDE with support for 30+
languages. It includes all of the editing capabilities you would expect
plus a built-in Source Database Engine that tracks every class, method,
module, struct etc. in real time enabling you to instantly jump to any
function etc. and making navigation of large complex code bases much
ED4W can be downloaded from:
The ED Web site is at http://www.getsoft.com I suggest you start with
the Blog post though.
I’m particularly interested in feedback on the new Ruby capabilities in
this release of ED, either on the blog or here.
