Which editor to use

i have just installed ror on ubuntu (trying my hand on ubuntu).
which editor is good that i can use

if you want something with gui, try emacs. If you want something
hardcore,
use vim.

jEdit and Komodo Edit (free, not Komodo IDE) are both good. Also both
available for Windows if you still use that.

gem install redcar

Use vim. You wont need anything else once you learn vim. It is also
customizable for what ever you need it to do. Everything else is for
children.

Try jEdit or Emacs.

Nobody else can really say what the right editor is for you, they can
only tell you what works for them. You should really think of what you
want and need from your editor to make a decision.

I personally am a big fan of Vim, because:

  • It’s available on most platforms
  • It’s customizable (not just syntax highlighting and such, also
    scripting and addons and such)
  • It puts a focus on using your keyboard rather than your mouse
  • It’s free

So before sweeping your broad-brush, you might be well served to
discover if the OP is a child…
:-/

Even if I use redcar after netbeans dropped rails support, I would
recommend
to use vim at least once in a while, it is a powerful and relative easy
to
use tool for the commandline when applying a quick hack via ssh.

I like RedCar very much because it is very similar to TextMate which
is my all time fav editor when using my Mac. But everytime I run it,
seems to suck out all resources and the system becomes very very slow.
I tried seeing the memory usage from the ‘top’
and it says redcar uses so much RAM.
I tried UltraEdit(trial version) and Geany, both work very fine.

UltraEdit has the tree view file browser which is very helpful when
working with any framework like RoR,but it is not free. Geany has File
Browser as a plugin, but it breaks many times that I got bored to see
the issue of WHY.
I am trying Komodo Edit now. But if anyone knows an editor that has
tree based file viewer in itself and not as a plugin please let me
know. And yeah, it should be free.

I agree with Mark. I’ve used many editors over the years. I like Vim
because
it is offers many benefits to the experienced user. I tried to pickup
Vim
earlier and had very little success. My recent attempts have been much
more
promising but Vim is challenging. If you want to use Vim then you will
need
to spend some serious time reading the help documentation. Best advice
for
Vim is learn to love Normal Mode.

Redcar is still young its version is 0.1.

My personal choice is gEdit…its simple, and you can add simple things
like
syntax highlighting, word completion etc.
I don’t like using IDE’s like Komodo Edit, Netbeans for Rails…its
better
if you type them yourself in the console.
Rest, its a personal choice.

I believe it’s already been mentioned: jEdit (http://jedit.org/)

It’s free and extremely configurable/extensible.

I totally recommend you to use Vim, specially the GUI version,
there is a lot of great plugins that increase the usability and the
power of the editor so much, it’s really great

Yeah, I just left TextMate for vim. I almost ditched it after the first
day,
but after the second day I won’t go back to Textmate. If you do it make
sure
you check out FuzzyFinder and NerdTree. Once you can get files open then
you
can use the mouse/visual mode until you get more commands down. I am
finding
it quite fun to use.

I leave you a link to my github vim repository, there are my
customizations
so it’ll be easier for you have a great configuration in Vim

https://github.com/forellana/dotvim

I like gedit text editor which is a standard accessory with Ubuntu.
No problems in 2 years of constant use.
NetBeans is a slow pig.

Beware of friends (software) that tries to be too friendly,

With vim I can’t open an entire directory to browse, for example if I
want to edit the files of a rails project I have to open file one by
one, instead with redcar I can open the directory and see the entire
rails project tree.

Try the NERDTree plugin – works great for this.

It is also for vim-gtk?
