The ruby editor and ide roundup

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Ruby_Programming/Ruby_editors

People contributing to the perennial editor and ide thread, please
help update/maintain this page and point there. I was thinking that we
have two links for every editor, one external link pointing to the
project homepage, and one internal link discussing the editor and
offering tips to get it working with ruby. (There was good collection
of such pages on the old wiki; does anyone have an archive?)

archive.org may have an archive, if you have an old bookmark and
can get the URL.

I generally find comparisons like this one
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_instant_messaging_clients
very helpful.

Well, I don’t have the time to create such a table myself :slight_smile: but I
would like to suggest the following columns for a comparison of
features:

  • syntax highlighting
  • template expansion
  • code completion (eg method & variable names)
  • regexp search
  • incremental search
  • find all occurrences of a word
  • file navigation that facilitates working with RoR-like directory
    layouts
  • programmability
  • build/make projects from within the editor/ide (maybe less useful
    with ruby but this could also include running a web app and switching
    to the browser etc.)
  • syntax checker
  • error lists that make it possible to jump right to the line where
    the (syntax) error occured
  • integrated debugger (set breakpoints easily etc.)
  • support for refactoring
  • support for unit tests/specs
  • task management
  • collaborative features?
