Make IR run as an external tool in VS

hi,
was wondering if anyone could help.
i’d like to be able to edit a ruby file in visual studio and just fire a
key seqeunce to run the file.

similar to how rob conery set up the machine specifications runner in
his IDE.
this pushed all the output nicely to the output window in vs.

i gave it a try but am not sure how to replicate how the dev.bat file
works.

anyone else done this??

You could use our free Visual Studio IronRuby IDE:

i’ve tried it, but as it says on your site its alpha, i couldnt get it
to work properly. i’ll look again once you guys have done some work on
it.
to be honest i’d buy the text edition right away if it did what i
wanted.

Just to clarify that we are waiting for IR 1.0 before commiting any more
time to our IronRuby support. In the meantime, the old alpha IDE still
works with IronRuby though you may need to adopt this interim fix:

By the way, going back to your original idea of running IR as an
external tool. What is the problem here? I wrote a small tutorial once
explaining how to run MySQL as a VS shortcut:

Are there any things different about running IR in that way?
