Editor recommendation

Hello lsit,

I’am new to rails (about 2 hours) and after the first lines of code
I must say: Great! I love it!

Can someone recommend me a editor? I run Ubuntu Dapper.

I wasn’t aware this existed for the gentleman’s platform (Ubuntu Dapper)

SWT is dog-slow on anything that’s not Win32 unless you throw massive
hardware at the problem.

On Linux, I’d use xemacs – the xemacsc-gnome-mule package in apt.

I would also highly recommend RadRails. Although a lot of your
beginning
rails work will be very simple, so you don’t need a big IDE, I find
RadRails
very nice to use. It allows you one environment to do basically
everything. The generators tab let’s you run things like generate
scaffold,
generate migration. There is a server tab to start webrick, and the new
Rake tab let’s you run Rake tasks like db:migrate. It also has some
code
completions built in.

Maybe I’m just so used to a heavy weight J2EE IDE that going to the
console
and notepad is too big of a jump. I feel more comfortable in an IDE
like
RadRails.

vim (gvim) and Project.
TPope also has a Rails vim script here.

gedit also has textmate style “snippets” which seem to be all the rage.
Embedded ruby syntax highlighting is lacking. You can install eddt or
the file browser plugin for a directory tree on the side pane.

jEdit has snippets via SuperAbbrevs, autocompletion, highlighting, and
project management. However to get all that working you need to install
a few plugins and a jre. Unfortunately various plugins have been
abandoned for the current 4.3pre5 so getting everything working can be a
chore.

SCiTE with scitePM is
nice; however you lack a embeded ruby lexer.

SWT is dog-slow on anything that’s not Win32 unless you throw massive
hardware at the problem.

Disagree - just make sure you run it in the Sun JDK 1.5 and remove gij.
Eclipse has - at least for me - serious stability and performance
problems
with gij.

My suggestion would be RadRails as well.

radrails is great. I use textmate on the mac, but whenever on
another OS i use radrails

KDevelop-Ruby. Has higlighting for Ruby and rhtml. Has class browser for
Ruby files (which in ‘java mode’ is really handy). Has great plugin for
code snippets. Is a native application which mean it is fast and has low
memory usage especially when compared to RadRails. It also has a modern
look and feel and uses standard editing shortcuts - so it has a low
entry barrier comparing to vi or emacs.

I personaly went through quite a list of editors and found KDevelop the
most handy.

Bluefish is also nice as it’s fast as hell, but lacks class browser and
it’s file browser is pain to use.

On Linux (Dapper) I use Lugaru’s Epsilon Editor (http://www.lugaru.com)
there are extensions for
ruby mode, and I have contributed some rails stuff, and a snippets thing
too.

(However it is not free).

I have also played with Komodo as an IDE, but am not impressed I
documented my findings here…
