Visual debuggers for Ruby


#1

Hi,

I normally use DDD for debugging my C/C++ code, and know it can debug
Perl
scripts. What graphical debugging is available for Ruby? I found
KDevelop,
but using it as a graphical debugger seems a bit overkill.

Thanks

Just looking at this quickly, can it be used to debug a Ruby on Rails
web application? Looking at it’s startup modes it doesn’t look like it
but hey, I am a noob!

Thanks

There have been several posts lately about a new graphical debugger for
ruby:

Also, look into arachnoruby
(http://www.ruby-ide.com/ruby/ruby_ide_and_ruby_editor.php) It has an
excellent graphic debugger. But I do not know how good the linux
support is.

I can second this – its probably the best graphical debugger
available at the moment., but it is a commercial IDE. ActiveState’s
Komodo IDE also has a graphical debugger that is good but slow (the
last time I used it – they may have fixed this).

If you’re look for open source, then you can find graphical debuggers
in the RDT Eclipse plugin, and FreeRIDE.
