IDE's With Indentation Guides Like SciTE?

I’ve used SciTE for quite some time now and have become addicted to the
indentation guides:
I.e. http://people.mosaix.net/chris/images/scite-lines.png

  1. Are there any other Ruby IDE’s that offer this feature other than
    Notepad++ & Scite? I like Aptana but this feature is non-existent.

  2. Also, I know lots of Ruby devs are once-java devs. I also do Java
    development and am similarly looking for a Java IDE that also has
    indentation guides. Any suggestions here?

I’ve google’d the topic many times but ‘Indentation Guides’ isn’t doing
the
trick. Is there another name for it? I can’t leave SciTE without this
feature!

Thanks in advance

Not precisely an IDE, but when I have to read someone else’s java or c
code I like to use jgrasp (http://www.jgrasp.org/)

jEdit[1] does it (install the whitespace plugin). Also google around
for the jEdit + Ruby guides, there are several.

Vim or Emacs can probably be made to, ether by an internal setting or an
extension of some sort. It’s been some time since I’ve used it but I
think
Kate provides such a feature using dots:

// I think this is how Kate can be made to show indentation, google’d
C++ code.
int
partition( int left, int right ) {

. int first=left, pivot=right–;
. while( left <= right ) {
. . while( a[left] < a[pivot] ) {
. . . left++;
. . }
. . while( (right >= first) && (a[right] >= a[pivot]) ) {
. . . right–;
. . }
. . if ( left < right ) {
. . . swap( left, right );
. . . left++;
. . }
. }
. if ( left != pivot ) {
. . swap( left, pivot );
. }
. return left;
}

But don’t quote me, I haven’t used Kate in ages.

I’m pretty sure one would have to find a script for such purposes on
Vim.org, or write it oneself – I don’t know of any integrated
capabilities along those lines. (If I’m mistaken, I’d like to know
about
it.)

Now that I’ve been reminded of that feature of SciTE, I may have to hunt
down a way to do that in Vim myself.

check out
http://mamchenkov.net/wordpress/2004/05/10/vim-for-perl-developers/2/
and scroll all the way to the bottom and check out vertical indent
display

it just takes a couple of lines in .vimrc!

Netbeans will highlight the other end of a block. It’s a good ide for
ruby and java too, of course.

I use Komodo IDE which is awesome. It has the indentation guides which
you can set at what ever you want, you have the option to hide them if
you want. There is also a neat little regexp tool I like to use. You can
download a demo.

I think it only works with ‘noexpandtab’ (using tabs not spaces), don’t
know
if that would be a problem for any one.

I generally use tabs if I use a for deeper indentation (6-8) for a
language
and spaces when in languages where I keep an indentation level small
(2-4) but
people have been known to use any thing from 1 space to tabs set to
display at
12 spaces deep! Good thing I use the language & indent to tell me what
things
belong to who hehe.

Yeah, that looks like it only works with tabs – which would be a
problem for me.

I’ll have to check out Komodo. VIM --I’m not that hardcore :slight_smile:

With regards to Eclipse & Aptana, is there a framework limitation that
prevents these from having this feature? After all the work that’s
been put into Eclipse, I find it strange that no one has implemented
this, at least as a plugin. Perhaps it’s not commonly used.

At any rate, thanks to all for the suggestions.

Oh, that one looks handy – and probably like exactly what the OP would
want, if interested in Vim.

I use netbeans to develop in rails, take a look:

Whatever keeps you from chastising me for not liking VIM

Yes, but only in private. And not too loudly. Think of the children…
