RE: Preferred Ruby Editor/IDE for OS X?


#1

Just a quick question, if I were tired of typing ruby into a terminal
editor, say I wanted, oh, a scroll bar, mouse support, and maybe
syntax highlighting? Anyone know os a good Ruby/Rails editor or IDE,
one that runs on OS X, possibly in Java?

Sure…

There’s RDT (http://rubyeclipse.sf.net) for Ruby, and RadRails
(http://www.radrails.org) for just Rails. Both are built on top of
Eclipse, RadRails comes packaged with everything you need in the
download, RDT comes as a set of plugins you install/unzip on top of
Eclipse. The next RadRails (0.5.3?) release should integrate RDT right
into it, so to get everything you could just download RadRails.

Also, there is a Ruby plugin for JEdit.
