What editor or IDE do you use?

I’m pretty new to Ruby. What editor or IDE do you use? I usually use VIM
for a lot of my coding. Rubymine looks pretty cool.

Vim all the way. For me, fits the Ruby mantra of keeping things simple
but flexible.

Vim too
here. There’s only one real downside here (for me, anyway): I’m used
to languages
using parenthesis and thus I’m used to navigate a lot with the % key
(jump
between parenthesis). Not so with ruby, to my knowledge there’s
nothing you
can make % to do jump between opening begin/class/etc. and closing
end. Would
love be proved otherwise here. […]

SciTE. I do mostly 'NIX coding – lots of processes and SHM – but it’s
nice that I can use it when I have to whack a ruby client for a doze
laptop. Syntax highlighting is a plus and it’s really easy to get Doze
users up to speed on it. Also easy to customize fonts et al.

I just have never really gotten used to the dual-mode editing that VI is
based on. :-%

get matchit.zip !
Thet let’s you dynamically add more pairs using b:match_words which
should already be implemented for ruby.
(I recommend using vim-addon-manager for installing plugins)

I use Vim, often from within an irb session via the interactive_editor
gem:

http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/programming-and-development/?p=4125

I use redcar, though it’s still a bit rough :slight_smile:

Are you asking me ? No - never used it.

Vim is powerful due to its modal editing.

However also Netbeans etc have Ruby support and Vi like keybindings.

So it also depends on what will done - eg whether rails support is
required etc.

Marc W.

I’m also a vi user.

I have a variation of interactive_editor I use inside irb and pry.

I do everything in the terminal - usually a Screen session with windows
for
bash, Emacs, rails console, and rails server. Back when I used IDEs, I
started with Eclipse + Aptana and later NetBeans, which was actually
quite
good, but I would say I’m many times faster now using simpler tools than
I
ever was with an integrated package.

Emacs, as always. These days I also toss RubyMine into the mix for its
refactoring, Cucumber support, and project indexing. I set up a
keybinding to open files in Emacs for serious editing.

I like it. It is also one of the few editors that is fast and totally
cross
platform. It has good syntax highlighting for things like Haml &
Cucumber
steps. Maybe that has improved recently, but redcar had it early on.

I’m using Redcar and I love it. It doesn’t stand in your way while
coding but provides a lot of useful features (it has problems, tough.
E.g. Redcar relies for many things on xulrunner, but can’t use a
xulrunner >= 2.0.0). I’m currently trying to familarize with emacs, but
the default colors it uses for Ruby syntax highlighting are really ugly.
Any way to change them?

Note that Redcar is still alpha; while this means it’s unstable and
sometimes crashes, it also means that new features get added each
release.

Vale,
Marvin

redcar sucks after sometime… it’s very beautiful and useful if keep
going.

It’s emacs you can change everything. The easy way just install themes
and select which you like.

Emacs is great for ruby, but it does have a learning curve to it. The
simplest two free editors to get up and running with are Jedit and
Geany. If you want to pay about $60 then this has every feature
imaginable http://www.jetbrains.com/ruby/

Brave move Avi :). I would never suggest vim to an experienced emacs
user and never emacs to an experienced vim user. The reason being that
Emacs is better than Vim and Vim is better than Emacs of course.

To OP eventually, now, if you are fine with vim there are few reasons
to change, there are marvelous plugins for Ruby and Rails and Git
and…

Redcar has made promising progress, the last time I checked, it is
quite nice now, I feel it deserves some publicity here.

…if you’re using a Mac, you might consider TextMate…it directly
supports: Ruby, Ruby on Rails and Git…
…it’s well worth its cost, about $25…
…many of the Ruby and RoR books recommend it…

I’m curious, anyone using Sublime Text? http://www.sublimetext.com/

I haven’t been interested in a new pure text editor in a long time,
but I’m kind of impressed with its “minimap”, among other things.
