What free editors for Ruby are there which have debugging,
intellisense, syntax coloring and the regular macros, etc.? What do you
So, after the regular text editor plugs from people that didn’t quite
read what you wanted - more on the side of a light IDE than an editor.
(No, I don’t consider being able to spawn the ruby text debugger in a
shell that shows up in an actual feature.)
As far as I know, intellisense for Ruby isn’t. To implement it would
require a Ruby parser that’s more complex in certain situations than the
one the ruby interpreter uses. (As a side note, I hate the VSism
“intellisense”, since it’s the only name for autocompletion that doesn’t
hint you to what the feature does. Doubleplus buzzwordy newspeak.)
EasyEclipse seems to offer not quite the newest versions of the related
plugins, you’re better off using the main RDT and RadRails update sites.
They -should- offer debugging though if I read the project websites
right - although RadRails does an even better job than hiding the
feature breakdown from you than Komodo.
Komodo might be another option, it worked very well for me with Python.
However, from when I briefly tried it, they had Ruby support mostly to
“go with the flow” - not quite the full feature list was implemented for
Vim WILL break your brain horribly if you’re used to other editor types,
and if you’re fine with Eclipse or jEdit, I doubt there’s anything to be
gained wasting your time on editor-hopping.
