I’ve been using ArachnoRuby for years and it’s served me well as an
editor, but, now it’s showing problems. It doesn’t work with Ruby 1.9.
And, it doesn’t work with the latest httpclient gem. I use that gem all
the time now. So, can anyone suggest a good Windows editor for Ruby? I
really like to use my editor for troubleshooting, so, of course, it
needs to have full debugging facilities.
Notepad++ is fast and tabbed but basic. I don’t use it much, buts its
nice general option.
Also I would promote Netbeans also. It is simply the best environment on
serious Ruby programming that I have found. While the start up time is
issue, I believe
that Netbeans can only be beaten for Ruby programming on windows by
based IDE (like IntelliJ Rubymine IIRC).
Another interim option, that I haven’t seen is ActiveState’s Komodo
Its a step up from a barebones editor like Notepad++, and is quite close
in terms of features, while still being lightweight and responsive.
