Ruber repository: GitHub - stcrocco/ruber: An IDE for Ruby written in Ruby using KDE
This releases fixes a single, but extremely important, bug which caused
to fail start unless the directory $KDEHOME/share/apps/ruber (which is
by Ruber itself) already existed.
From the Ruber home page:
Ruber is a fully modular IDE for ruby written in ruby using korundum,
ruby bindings which works on Linux (and should work on other Unix-like
Except for the basic infrastructure, all of Ruber’s functionality is
by plugins. This means that any user can easily augment Ruber’s features
writing his own plugin. He can also replace functionality provided by
plugins coming with Ruber in a way which integrates seamlessly with
Written in ruby:
Ruber is written in ruby, and so, of course, are its plugins. This means
its users already know the language needed to extend it. A very
situation from, for example, Netbeans where you’d need to learn Java to
a plugin for programming in ruby (in other aspects, Netbeans is a good
with very nice plugins for developing in ruby).
Using the KDE ruby bindings:
Ruber uses the wonderful KDE ruby bindings, which makes it expecially
for people using a KDE desktop (but can be enjoied also by users with a
different desktop). In particular, Ruber makes use of the excellent Kate
for the editor window, meaning it has the extremely well-written ruby
highlighter and most of the tools Kate itself has.
If you try it, please let me know what do you think.
