Rails editor

Hi guys,
I was wondering if any of you guys know off any light-weight rails
editor…
I am using RadRails…
and after i moved to Rails 2.0 RadRails is not giving me syntax
highlighting for .html.erb files

but all i need is a good editor and not an IDE… i don’t want all
server, test debug etc on it… it just makes it madly heavy

all I need is good syntax highlighting…

thnx

Currently, I use TextMate on OS X. Vim and Emacs are good cross-platform
editors. On Windows, I’ve heard good things about the E text editor, as
it’s
quite similar to TextMate. There are many other choices, though. You
should
be able to find lots of recommendations by searching this mailing list,
as
this question is common.

I leave it to you to conduct a thorough search, but searching Google for

rails editors

turns up this hit

http://tips.webdesign10.com/editors-for-ruby-on-rails-ubuntu-jedit-emacs-radrails-cream-scite

which should be a good start.

Then you likely already have vim or Emacs. Googling for

vim rails

or

emacs rails

will turn up many hits. Since I don’t use those editors for Rails
development, I don’t have any advice regarding them.

Good luck,
Craig

Try NetBeans 6.1 Beta it rocks.

http://wiki.netbeans.org/Ruby

Here is Netbeans forum on Nabble

http://www.nabble.com/NetBeans-Ruby-f27019.htm

I have Netbeans 6.1 beta installed on both Ubuntu 7.1 and Fedora 5. It
runs very well. I run Nebeans on Windows as well, so it is very
convenient. I don’t have a Mac so I cannot comment on it.

For light-weight editing, both VIM (or GVIM or Cream with Ruby plug-in)
or gedit which comes with every linux installation are good enough.

So really with NetBeans IDE and these two editors, I don’t have a need
to look elsewhere. I have been a long time Eclipse user and still use
Eclipse for Java work, but NetBeans is way ahead of anything open-source
in the Eclipse world for Ruby and Ruby on Rails which is my primary
interest at this point.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Bharat

I agree, on my linux box I use netbeans with the ruby stuffed plugged
in - and it rocks. It’s a little slow (in the ui aspect) but that’s
probably my machine itself. I am a big vi fan, though, and do also
utilize that for “quickie” edits.

Tom,
You may want to install the latest JDK 6 update 10 beta release, it
definitely improves the performance and also the look and feel. See
my recent post and Tor’s reply on the NetBeans Nabble forum:

I finally took the advice and converted my Gedit to something close to a
textmate… will blog about it…
thnx guys for al the help

Fan of NetBeans!

Cheers, Sazima
