RoRED a free Ruby on Rails editor for Windows

Hi.
On http://www.plasmacode.com you can download RoRED, a free IDE for Ruby
on Rails apps, only for Windows.
It has some interesting features like tab-grouping of related MVC files,
code navigation into methods (ctrl+click), and more.

Best regards,
Marcus.

Ok, it asks for the app directory of a rails app, but won’t accept a
directory, seems to want a file itself. It requires a .rb file be in
the
…\app directory (which isn’t my natural understanding of where things
go).

Thanks for the contribution; it’s interesting. What is it written in?

Jim

Some things I’ve liked so far (coming as a happy radrails user),
has an idea of “group” files. I can open the controller, right click,
and
pick “open all associated files”
easy to set numbered bookmarks within a file, easy to go to them -
GLOBAL bookmark navigation seperate from above - crosses files.

most irritating to date: find allows regular expression, but when you
come
back to the dialog from one, say to refine it, it has not preserved your
settings, so to keep trying, you have to keep selecting an option that
should persist.

Definately some cool ideas; would love to see them implemented in
Radrails
but don’t know Java well enough to do so myself.

Hello Marcus,

On http://www.plasmacode.com you can download RoRED, a free IDE for Ruby
on Rails apps, only for Windows.
It has some interesting features like tab-grouping of related MVC files,
code navigation into methods (ctrl+click), and more.

The single most important feature I use in IntelliJ IDEA is
Shift+Ctrl+N, which asks me for the filename I want to open. Not a
full open dialog, just the filename, and the IDE searches the list to
find the file I want.

So, I can type “account” and the system gives me:

account.rb
account_test.rb
accounts_controller.rb
accounts_controller_test.rb
accounts.yml

I can also do things like “acc*test” and I get:

account_test.rb
accounts_controller_test.rb

That’s a friggin’ time saver feature.

Bye !

Just downloaded and installed. Reading the license, I have a problem:

THIS PROGRAM IS FREE FOR PERSONAL AND NO-PROFIT USE.
PROFIT/COMMERCIAL USE INCLUDES:

  • PROGRAM USE FOR/FROM ANY COMPANY
  • COMMERCIAL WEB SITE CREATION

So I can’t use it because I have my own company, and I can’t use it
because I’m creating applications that are designed to sell stuff :frowning:

Too bad. Couldn’t you at least give me 30 days to try it in a
commercial setting ?

Bye !

Hi François, i shall rewrite tha license…
FREE FOR ANY USE
should be the right one. Please feel free to use without -almost- any
limitation.

Marcus.

Thanks Jim, shall fix this and other on next release.

That “almost” is killing :wink:

Anyways, I’m getting bandwidth exceeded error :-s, so cant try it out.

Hi you all, I’m new to Ruby and more new to Rails (I’ve just installed
it!). I would like to know if I should download RoRED or RadRails :D.
Seriously, I would like to know which one of the editors you recommend.
thanks.

Yeah! I’ve jumped ship to Ruby, but that’s my mother tongue. Although
I’m
more in favor of extending RadRails, if you’re going to do much more on
this
in Delphi, please let me know, and maybe I’ll step up to the plate, if
you’d
want. I’m working on Mac in textmate for a living, and admit they have
a
cool feature similar to Francois’ suggestion: a dialog to open any file
in
project, that looks for each letter you type in order:

acnr would match CarController.rb for example.

Jim

Although positive on this new development, I think RadRails gives you a
lot
of help, holds your hand a lot. It has, for example, a window that
allows
you to browse plugins or install them with a click.

More help on Ruby programming might be Komodo

RoRED has some very interesting new features, so is sure worth looking
at.
So much is personal preference. Are you looking for an IDE or a text
editor, cause the first two are about IDE, and may lack a lot of text
editor
spiffs.

Jim

Well even the RadRails guys recommend that you use the full
RadRails app rather than the plugin. Having used the plugin I
can understand why, it feels a bit limited actually, and eclipse
can be a bit funky with Ruby code anyway (reporting syntax
errors where there are none).

Hi Marcus
In which Programming language you have developed this IDE ?
Thanks
Baluvee

What about Eclipse and the RoR plug-in RadRails?

Everything is free!!!
