I know this subject has been mention a few time recently but I’ll ask
again and hopefully I’ll be specific enough that its new.
I’ve been using SCITE as my main code editor. I’m not a developer
just a sysadmin so for the scripts that I use VBscript and Ruby it
fills my need and then some.
My needs listed below for the curious and to keep the alternate editor
suggestions to a minimum
- Lightweight (smaller is better)
- Cross platform (I use linux at home)
- Multiple tabs for many open files
- Handles a fair number of language for syntax highlighting
- Customizable (color schemes and added shortcuts for svn use)
Recently I was working with someone on some VBscript and I noticed a
feature that I had forgotten existed in VBscript editors. That
feature was a drop down box to switch between various functions. I
know that VBscript is different from Ruby but I was wondering if there
are any Ruby editors that have something similar to traverse class
definitions or blocks or any of the other Ruby structures.
I imagine that a person might be able to customize SCITE to add a
feature like this but aside from not knowing LUA I’m also a relative
coding and Ruby novice. So I’m asking the group if anyone has seen or
knows of something similar?
