RadRails 0.4.1 is out


#1

Check out our latest release here: www.radrails.org

If you want to bring our plugins into your existing eclipse
installation use this eclipse update site:
http://download.radrails.org/update

In this release there are several bug fixes, a completely refactored
RHTML editor, a brand new CSS editor, more Ruby content assist
templates and SQL content assist templates.

Cheers,
Kyle S.

Thanks for your good work :wink:
But I notice the completion bug is still not be fixed (the one which
didn’t respect correct indentation when use ctrl+space) :’(

I hope it will be fixed in the next release…
This project is very promising, thanks again.

Forgive the silly question, but I’m new to Eclipse, Ruby, and Rails.
I’ve
got some tools installed into Eclipse from org.rubypeople.rdt. Is there
a
comparison between these two plugins?

Jake


#4

So these two plugins won’t step on each other? I installed the RDT one
and
then WDT to get some syntax highlighting in rhtml. It seems that the
RadRails will do a better job of that, I’m just curious how they work
with
each other (or don’t!).

RDT is the plugin for Ruby, the language, not Rails in particular.

See rubyeclipse.sf.net for more information.

I agree too :slight_smile:
This bug is very annoying and I can’t use radrail because of that,
even if it has a lot of great features… 99% of the time, I write
code, so the code editor is extremely important to me.

I’ll try the next release.

agreed. this is the first thing i check when i try out new releases of
RadRails (or RDT for that matter): “have they fixed the indentation for
content assist yet?!”

but the syntax highlighting looks really good… still looking forward to
more auto-complete (ending HTML tags, brackets, etc.)… i think the
most
important thing to focus on is to be a good code editor for .RB and
.RHTML
files for rails projects. all the other stuff like database views,
stop/starting the server, database.yml editors, etc are nice to have,
but
actual code editing features are the most important to me…

how do we get the black background back? :slight_smile:

whinge mode on

You guys are lucky that this is your only problem! I’ve tried the
last three versions of RadRails and can’t make it work at all. For
some reason it can’t find rails on my system, so fails to create
projects or run anything. I’ve e-mailed the RadRails developers,
filed a bug (http://dev.radrails.org/trac/ticket/272), and still got
nowhere. All they tell me is that rails needs to be in my path. Guess
what? It is! I run it every day. RadRails still can’t find it.

What I don’t understand is, if RadRails is a double clickable app on
OS X, where is it supposed to be getting my path from? It’s not being
run inside a shell, so my rc files will not be run, and the path will
not be set.

(Setup for the interested is: OS X 10.4.3, ruby and rails installed
via DarwinPorts.)

Color preferences are located in Window > Preferences, then Rails.

You can set colors on all of our editors from there.

Auto-complete will be coming in 0.5.

Pete,

Today was the first I had heard of RadRails (as I’m new to ROR) and I am
running the Windows version w/o any problems at all. I’m using it right
now to run and debug my app and it beats the heck out of the way I was
doing things before!

For me, it’s a keeper. I’m just a newbie and not doing anything too
complicated - so maybe my experience is different from other more
advanced users. I was a little worried when I downloaded it and I saw
all the jar files in the zip file. I went ahead and extracted the files
and double-clicked on radrails.exe and it magically worked! That is my
experience so far.

Hi Pete,

go into your shell, cd to the directory where radrails is installed and
type:

open radrails.app

I was suffering from the same problem you had until I tried that.

Trevor

Unfortunately, for whatever reason daeI still cannot seem to run
radrails even though I downloaded the new version as told.

Here’s what I get (which is new in version 0.4.1 (the error message is
new)):


Error creating WEBrick server:
Server script file not found.


A folder was created with nothing in it. So no rails app was created.
I am able to do everything with Rails with no problem at the command
line and textmate. So that’s where I’ll probably stay for now.

At least I don’t feel as stupid for haveing the same issue on Moday :-).

The background color is in:

Preferences/General/Appearance/Editors/TextEditors

but it is a pain to set all of them back to the black theme. If you
want I can send you my exported preference file.


#14

That would be great!


#15

Hi Kyle
I couldn’t find where to set the background color of the editor (back
to
black).
Maybe I’m blind but all I can see are settings for font colours.
Good work BTW.

#16

That’s because we didn’t implement Run As, Debug As etc. What are you
trying to use those for? The console gets populated with SVN and
WEBrick server messages.

#17

RadRails Team -

Thank you, thank you. I just tried RadRails for the first time on my
Mac and it runs like a dream. The SVN integration and code completion
features are very helpful. I think it may be time to ditch
textmate. Any chance of getting a tailed development log into the
console?

Keep up the good work!

Trying to run tests, basically.

RadRails looks promising, but it doesn’t seem to work properly on my
home system; I’m running Ruby 1.8.2 on WinXP SP2. RadRails starts up
fine, and sets up rails projects fine, but when I try using “Run As”
on any script, nothing runs. The Run As, Debug As, etc options
disappear from the context menu, and nothing appears in the console.

Any idea what might be going wrong?

Tail should be coming soon. I’ll bring it up with the team but I
think marc already has the code we just need to decide how we want to
integrate it.

Cheers,
Kyle
