Mac users: what program do you use to create your views?

just wondering if there is a better way to create a nice view other than
using iweb. like, it would be nice if you can design a view, and then
just add the ruby tags.

thanks.

just use TextMate :slight_smile: it’s too good not to use! Best Rails editor
everrrrr!

free tools…
TEXTWRANGLER (http://www.barebones.com/products/textwrangler/)
or

i do it two ways…

when it’s something that will just be used internally, i use textmate…

when it’s something for a client, we have a designer make a template…

then, i just use that, and the css files that the designer makes, and
drop them into rails…

although textmate is a text editor, i have found it to be the fastest
way to crank out html ever.

It seems that most people either write their HTML by hand or hire
someone else to do it. I don’t think there are any tools that will let
you design HTML and drop in the ERb tags, though that would be totally
cool.

If you’re not interested in writing your own HTML, and if you’re happy
with the output of iWeb, I’d keep using it.
