Format code, IDE

outside of eclipse or netbeans plugins, is there an open source ruby
IDE?

Even just using GNU fm to format code would be sufficient, but I’m not
sure how to go about that. For now I find myself firing up netbeans
from
time to time, which is inconvenient, to say the least.

I tried installing arcadia, but but that failed :frowning:

If your needs are a simple as formatting code, both emacs and vim (in
order of alphabet) have ruby support which will do that and more.

Looks like you may need some packages

I love the little disclaimer. Afraid to start a holy war? :smiley:

Seriously though, I love vim’s auto indentation. It’s very rarely
wrong and when it is, it usually gets it wrong on javascript embedded
in HTML or something like that. I had to give up on emacs a few years
ago because most of my ruby development is in Rails, and I could never
get the hang of two-mode-mode to edit the views.

I started to use Aptana, you might want to check it out for yourself
and see if you like it.

I have to admit it took me a while to get going to create a “Hello
World” test project. I found out I needed to edit the environment.rb
file and comment out the version of Rails it was expecting, after this
I was able to view my test page inside the IDE browser. Also took me a
while to figure out how to use webrick for dev instead of mongrel
which I also have installed on my dev box.

Anyways I think it’s a nice IDE, I was using Bluefish / Kate to edit
my code before :wink:
