I want to let you know that I appreciate all the work you are doing to
try to keep the ROR netbeans plugin project going. I have been
depending on it for 6 years as my primary dev environment for rails.
I have seen some of the posts with regard to bug fixes around the web.
Especially the auto-completion bug (Makes it nearly unusable on my mac).
Is there anyway you can make the “dev” version available in a repo so we
can just add it to the netbeans plugin sources and grab it when bugs are
fixed. Also it would be easier to give the dev team (all two of you
) feedback when a bug is encountered.
OMT, there are apparently two plugins in the netbeans plugin site, which
should be combined into one page.
Thanks and keep up the good work,

Last week I decided I would spend 1 full day a week working on this
until we can get it back onto the plugins catalog by default. The
lack of Netbeans domain knowledge and purely-spare-time nature has not
been cutting it. I have too many other hobby projects and nb ruby
support is too important.
I have done some work already (like updating to build to bundle jruby
1.7.0 – last week). I will send to our mailing list and the netbeans
one when I have something a little bit better. Also Rocko Requin has
been helping to find a indexing hang which can occur.
The first order goal is to get the test green and cleaned up. The
newer indexing libs in nb are causing issues and we have some process
launching issues (mostly on Windows).
The next goal will be updating nb to use latest release of
jruby-parser. It has lots of 1.9 parser fixes and ultimately should
be the kernel of all AST-related activities.
The goal after that is to update for Rails 4 (Rails 3 probably as well
since it is not working correctly).
The long-term goal will be to start replacing large swaths of Java UI
code with Ruby scripted code. The maintenance of this code is pretty
ugly. Lots of String handling which would be trivial in Ruby (and
this code is not performance sensitive).
If anyone wants to help then send me an email. I will get you up to
speed on building things.
