Ruby syntax coloring in emacs


#1

Hi. Could someone please explain how to get ruby syntax coloring in
emacs? I’m running Mac OS X and I’m sort of new to emacs in general (I
know how to use a few emacs key bindings, but I don’t really know
anything about elisp files). Thanks!

Probably http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?InstallingEmacsExtensions ,
except
the site is loading slowly right now. Maybe check google for a cached
copy.

I think Carbon Emacs and AquaMacs both bundle the ruby-mode. So you
should get syntax highlighting out of the box. You might need :
(global-font-lock-mode t)

in your .emacs (or set using M-x customize-variable RET
global-font-lock-mode ).
