Like others have said, there is no IDE for WATiR, but, you should
still use an IDE, or IDE-like editor. It will save you a ton of
headache.

When I used to do this for work I used Eclipse, but later moved
NetBeans, which I find superior. For smaller projects scite works
pretty well. Remember if you use NetBeans+WATiR you want to select
the native ruby interpreter, not jruby!

It does look interesting. I couldn’t find the source code, though –
just a Windows installer. Is there a source repository available for us
Linux people?

I’ve never met a happy clam. In fact, most of them were pretty steamed.

Hi Narendra,

I am using iTest2 (http://itest2.com/), which has a basic IDE
(features: http://redmine.agileway.net/wiki/itest2/ITest_features) and
recorder (Firefox plugin).

The test script is using rWebUnit (extension of Watir, can call most of
Watir methods directly) with RSpec syntax. The recorder records rWebUnit
and Watir test scripts.

Thanks for the interests. At this point of time, we can only provide the
windows installer, iTest2 does work on Mac and Linux platforms though.

rWebUnit git repository is at

The link is now fixed,

This looks interesting.

The goal of iTest2 (is to make it easier for testers, end users,
analysts, managers and developers access to and be productive on your
wonderful testing framework: Watir. Thanks!

It is extremely light on documentation at the moment.

Zhimin

Zhimin,

This looks interesting. I was unable to navigate the link you provided
for
the features. It is asking me for a password.
