Check out http://www.openedpc.com for some cool PC stuff. I pretty much
use it as a definitive guide for free/open software.

Cheers,

It’s an acquired taste, but www.vim.org

For Rails…Radrails, which uses Eclipse as it’s base and includes
all kinds of nice Rails features/testing. http://www.radrails.org

Just an editor, JEdit is good. http://www.jedit.org/

Here are 2 text editors (not IDE) for Windows and 2 for Unix-like
systems.

On Windows:

Notepad++ 3.5 - Scintilla-based editor (more features than Scite)
http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

Vim and GVim 6.4 - GVim offers “easy-mode” if you don’t have time to
master vim keystrokes–take time to learn it an you’ll be amazingly
productive
http://www.vim.org

On *BSD and Linux:

Vim and GVim 6.4 - high learning curve, but it enables you to be more
productive than any other text editor once you master it
http://www.vim.org

NEdit - GUI text editor that is easy-to-use
http://www.nedit.org

gnu-emacs + ruby-mode + mmm-mode + rails-mode + ido + ruby-electric

running on X or win32 with Consolas font (thanks Microsoft)

essentially its a free textmate, with a few added festures like
esperanto spellcheck and tetris

gnu-emacs + ruby-mode + mmm-mode + rails-mode + ido + ruby-electric

woops forgot ECB (file/SVN browser) + semantic bovinator + eieio ( i
think these help out with the auto-completions somehow, as if ‘link_to
“hi”’ was hard to type…)

For rails development RadRails is pretty sweet… but for just editing
text files (with
syntax highlighting, word completion, code folding, good searching, and
a basic execution
window) SciTE is pretty sweet. It comes with the Ruby and Python windows
installers;
available for *nix.

Plain old vim with proper .rhtml syntax highlighting is all I’ve ever
seen a need for.

Whenever this thread comes up, I get a chuckle - it’s like asking
“what’s
your favorite color?”.

That said, someone always mentions an editor+plugin combination that I
wind up trying - I guess the “perfect editor” is an ongoing quest…

Has anyone added Eclipse? It has a nice ruby plugin as well.

Keep in mind that radrails is built on top of Eclipse, so it’s the best
of
both worlds. But, if I were to use Eclipse for strictly RoR development,
I’d
stick w/ RadRails.
