IronRuby on NetBeans

Hi friends,

I was trying to use IronRuby as a Ruby platform in NetBeans but without
any
success. It keeps telling me that the interpreter doesn’t seem to be a
valid
Ruby interpreter.
This is what I have tried without success:

  • I figured out that NetBeans was trying to run a file on the path
    “C:\program files\NetBeans 6…” which has spaces, so I tried to point
    it
    to a batch file I had created that executes ir “%*”. No success.
  • Tried to move NetBeans to a directory with no spaces at the path. No
    success.

I guess it’s something more than just doing that. From NetBeans log I
can
see that it fails every time with the next error:
WARNING [org.netbeans.api.ruby.platform.RubyPlatformManager]: Detection
of
platform timeouted

Is someone familiar enough with NetBeans to find the reason for that?

Thanks!
Shay.

I guess you’d have to make ironruby a known platform for Netbeans,
perhaps
they only check for executable names that have ruby in them. you can try
to
symlink (ntfslink i believe) ir.exe to ironruby.exe and see where that
gets
you. (copying should also work)
I’m using Rubymine, very similar to netbeans but works with IronRuby.

I’ve recently fixed issues with spaces in paths in %x{}. So maybe the
latest IronRuby build would work if this is the blocker.

I don’t know about ntfslink, but I know mklink will work for NTFS
symlinks and hard links (and junctions)
