Most popular IDEs for Ruby on Rails development

Hi guys,

Can you tell me which are the most popular and widely used IDEs for
Ruby, and for Ruby on Rails development ? According to your
impressions ?
What do you use the most ? Are there different solutions for the
different operating systems ?

Thanks,

Krum.

IDE ? Ruby? What the fuck ?)

Go on then… in the sliding scale between hardcore text editors (Vi,
Edlin, Emacs) and bloaty IDEs, how can people not consider Textmate to
be closer to an IDE than a text editor?

One of my colleagues at the moment is a Mac Fanboy, and spits and
curses about IDEs and happily sits there batting away with Textmate
and all its “integrated” syntax highlighting and autocomplete
helpers…

Are there different solutions for the different operating systems ?

Yes.

The Mac guys seem to go for Textmate.
On Ubuntu and Windows I’ve used Eclipse and Netbeans, and much prefer
Netbeans - been using the last three releases with very few issues. I
found Eclipse a bit lardy and slow - although part of that was the
lower spec of my old PC, and changing to Xubuntu sped it up a bit.

A few years ago I dabbled with Aptana on Windows, and hated it -
couldn’t fathom any of the functionality, and might as well have been
using Notepad. Hell - I even used Visual Studio for a while - but
there was no “Integration” with Ruby… and that was just from my
familiarity with it from ASP Classic days.

Of course you can use any text editor - but an IDE will speed some
stuff up for you (at the risk of you getting lazy and not knowing what
is going on under the hood - like when running rake tasks, or server
instances).

…others prefer to use Vi and Emacs (but they fight amongst
themselves so much, they tend to stay out of the way :wink:

Use whatever tools help you Get Things Done.

I use Rubymine both on my Linux laptop and my Mac Mini. I find
it much better than Aptana, which I used for about a year.

I use RubyMine (the best one IMO), and TextMate for casual editing.

Seems to me that textmate’s bundles offer similar possibilities to
emacs modes or vim scripts (both of which can add syntax highlighting/
autocompletion similar to what textmate supports)

Hi,

You can use Instant Rails for Rails development

The recent one is Aptana Studio.But the thing is that this Apatana has
inbuilt JDK which takes more space and it will slow down your system.But
this Apatana IDE has more features as compared to Instant Rails

Hope this answers your question

I use Quanta on my Linux boxes. It’s side pane tree view of file-
system is best thing which always makes me come back to Quanta after
trying other programs. Not to mention that Quanta is a web developers
editor with lots of nice things like all sorts of tag and style
dialogue windows making work easy.

I use Netbeans (www.netbeans.org) since 2000 and I’m very happy (it has
VERY GOOD Ruby/Rails support)

I use Intellij RubyMine or Idea

There… Take a look at this. I am teaching myself Vim, but own a license
for Rubymine. If you’re going for RoR, I would heartily recommend
Rubymine for IDEs and Vim otherwise.

Of all the IDE I’ve used I hate Netbeans the least. But, note that I
don’t use any of them for Ruby development. I basically have to use an
IDE for my Java work to keep myself sane. I just can’t bring myself to
say that I “like” any of them though.

As for Ruby and Ruby on Rails, I’m a Textmate users. As far as any
debate on whether Textmate could be categorized as an IDE, I don’t
really care. All I know is that I find it to be an excellent text editor
for writing code.

The IDEs that constantly popup suggestions for completion actually
drives me a bit nuts. I know a lot of people love that sort of thing.
However, I want a text editor that helps me edit text, and then gets out
of my way so I can write code. I don’t need, or want, it to try to write
code for me.

This is what Textmate does for me. I also know a number of developers
that prefer VIM, but for very similar reasons. I could see the appeal of
being able to stick to one tool (a terminal in this case), but I’m still
a lot more comfortable with a terminal window and a Textmate window.

There’s one feature I’ve been missing in Emacs: find all files in a
project matching a certain, incrementally typed pattern. And activate
this by a single shortcut. Eclipse/Aptana and Textmate do this
exceptionally well, I haven’t found this functionality in a similarly
easy and quick way in Emacs. It might be hidden somewhere, please point
it out in case I just didn’t find it.

Yes, I know. Over the past 10+ years I’ve made a few feeble attempts,
however, I never fell as much in love with Emacs and elisp programming
to do anything substantial. So, no, this is not really an option for me.

I advise using a text editor and command line tools if you are just
learning. An IDE will hide too many important things from you. Plus,
you’ll spend time dicking around with the IDE and plugins and just
trying to get it working that you can be spending building your
application or learning Rails and Ruby.

I use Eclipse for Java development. Not because I like it, but because
I’ve used an IDE my whole Java career and can not do without the
crutch. I’ve vowed to not restrict myself like that with Ruby and
Groovy.
