SharpDevelop

I saw this on twitter
todayhttp://twitter.com/SharpDevelop/statuses/19486122559that
SharpDevelop 4.0 supports IronRuby 4.0
http://build.sharpdevelop.net/buildartefacts/

http://build.sharpdevelop.net/buildartefacts/There have been questions
before abetout IDE support so I thought some of you might be interested.

A quick summary of my first impression after 10 minutes of playing with
it:

The good

  • I found it’s nice and straight forward to just go File New Project,
    Ruby
    app, set a break point, hit F5 and step through.
  • I noticed that it allow us to add references and Web Service
    References to
    a project, not sure what this would translate to in a Ruby project.
  • It feels like a similar environment for .NET devs, they seem to make
    interop really easy (e.g having C# and Ruby projects sitting together in
    the
    same solution).

The bad

  • I think that other IDEs, in particular RubyMine are better targeted
    for
    Ruby development (e.g. use of Cucumber, run tasks, execute scripts, run
    rake
    tasks, etc)
  • Might not be a big deal, but it only has templates for Winforms,
    Console
    and Class Library (not sure what the last one means in the IR world),
    but
    not for WPF, MVC or Rails

Overall is good that we start having some products supporting IR out of
the
box. I hope more will follow. Nice

Disclaimer, this is a nightly build and not sure how stable it’s.
