Getting started: quick question virtual rails>>>

I am running Linux Mint with virtual machine and virtual rails
installed on my laptop…I am barely learning ruby on rails and still
a novice…now that I have virtual rails installed I am assuming I use
the netbeans IDE 6.8 for building applications and embedding ruby
code. is this correct? I wasnt sure if I use the command prompt or
both.

Rails authors assume a lot of rails and rake commands be done on
the command line, yes. Netbeans will run lots of those commands for
you.

You can use either. I would generally advise forgetting about NetBeans
and using a good editor such as KokodoEdit, not an UDE. Rails really
doesn’t need or want an IDE.

Er, that would be KomodoEdit. I’ll blame my iPhone for the typo. :smiley:
