Many, though not all, will suggest that an IDE is not useful for Rails
development. Choose an editor with ruby support (I use jEdit, Komodo
edit free has also been recommended) and use the console for running
scripts.

+1 for Colin’s suggestion. I’m able to move pretty fast now that my
fingers
are used to the key combinations I use with Emacs and GNU Screen.

I did use NetBeans for a while when I was getting started, and I found
the
support to be pretty solid. Oracle is discontinuing direct support for
Ruby
and Rails in the upcoming version and throwing it over to the community
to
continue maintenance, so it remains to be seen whether this will remain
a
viable option.

Hello,
I would suggest RubyMine, or for multilinugal reasons IntelliJ, a
Java IDE from JetBrains.

It supports a big bunch of common rails tasks, just try it (the
community-edition is free).

Regards, Michael

I have Netbeans, I didn’t want to count on it as an option because of
what you have mentioned about oracle

Aaaaaaaa ha.
I have download RubyMine from here.
http://www.jetbrains.com/devnet/index.html
here…http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/RUBYDEV/RubyMine+EAP
I really hope this is the right place this looks really good,because
Intellij is not a free product.
Could you please point me to the “community-edition is free” ?
if the link I have from where I have download is correct then this is
too good to be true :slight_smile:
Coming from eclipse and visual studio I like code completion.
UPS… it is not free, it needs license :frowning:
