Rails IDE

Hi

I just want to know what IDE’s are being used for Rails development by
the people here. I had been using RadRails but it looks like there will
be no more releases of it.

I gave jEdit a spin, which has a lot of nice features, but I couldn’t
stand how it didn’t automatically sync up the files in my project
directory. I.e. I would have to manually import any new files created in
that directory into the project which is obviously a problem when
developing with Rails.

I’m liking netbeans (alphas). It’s alot faster and smoother than
radrails, has somewhat good auto completion, it won’t find active
record dynamic fields though. The only major thing it’s laking for
rails is better .rhtml file support.

It’s an alpha release though, so it’s buggy, But for me at least all
the exceptions have been caught and not affected it running.

is there one with a googd support for testing?
is there anyone who has tryed rails with kdevelop and/or emacs?

I use vim (sorry :)) with the Rails plugin from Pope. It’s really
useful,
you can toggle between your controller/views with a simple ^gf, etc.

Give it a try!

At the begining i try a RADrails
then i found the RORED and still use it

Switch to Mac, get TextMate. Most of the Core Ruby/Rails developers use
TextMate, for good reason.

I use RadRails sometimes. What evidence do you have that there will
be no more releases? A quick look around the home page [ http://
radrails.org ] revealed nothing.

Thanks,

Is there any IDE at all which I can use to do some serious work?

Regards

Sandeep

Hi, it’s not necessary to use an IDE to do serious work within Rails
becuase there have been many Rails applications built without it.
However, this might not be true for other languages and frameworks.
Finally, if you’re really in need of an IDE, then you might want to
give Komodo IDE 4.0 a try from activatestate.com. One can find a
feature list at the following:

http://www.activestate.com/products/komodo_ide/more_information.plex

Good luck,

“Is there any IDE at all which I can use to do some serious work?”

Any IDE from the list above to notepad can be used to do serious work.
An IDE is merely a helpful tool not a requirement.

"+1. Who can really develop Java applications whithout an IDE whith
strong
built-in autocompletion feature?
The point is that Ralis is based on Ruby. When you’re seeking for a
method, just translate your idea into english and ‘Voilà’!
Obviously, the console is your friend. "

I can. Maybe it’s familiarity but java’s naming conventions make a
hell of alot more sense to me than rubys does. toString is alot more
guessable than to_s. Most of the core ruby functions don’t make alot
of sense.

It looks great. I’m gonna try it!

Where can you get this extension pack for rails?

If Dreamweaver wasn’t such a pig on Mac and ran natively, I would
consider it. However, I am currently enjoying the speed and simple
elegance of TextMate. Still, I tend to agree with some other people, I
think an auto-complete feature would be a nice addition. Like others,
I come from a Java/C++ background and I don’t find ruby’s syntax as
easy as translating into english as those claim.

Keep in mind, this is a nit, not a complaint. I am loving RoR and not
too interested in developing another webapp in J2EE anytime soon. :wink:

I do like eclipse though so it would be nice to see RadRails really
pull it together. I tried using it several months ago and I found at
the time it hampered more than it helped.

I love TextMate and I know I have only found probably 20% of it’s
functionality. I should spend more time RTFM but I have so much work
on my plate at the moment.

Use Google :smiley:

Dreamweaver Rails Extension

For those of you wondering about radrails (I use it all the time),
they just posted and update “RadRails Future” over at radrails.org.
