Depends what platform you're on. RadRails is excellent for Windows. Mac users tend to swear by TextMate. Check out Arachno for Ruby also. But it's very personal! On 5/11/07, ibn tachfine <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > -- http://www.web-buddha.co.uk

For linux ?
on 2007-05-11 13:35
I've been using Eclipse with RadRails plugin[s] and, other and Java's well-known memory usage, I like it a lot. I suppose I could bite the bullet and choose something leaner but I've grown accustomed its syntax checking. RSL

Aptana works perfectly, it´s very good

True, the NB dailies are a wee bit unstable at times. However, it is months away from release, so that is to be expected. It is alpha quality at this time, but still surprisingly useful. I use it every day. There's also a build just for Ruby, which tends to be a little better than the full IDE: http://wiki.netbeans.org/wiki/view/Ruby n

Hi there, An editor/IDE is a matter of choice and a cause of holy wars :) My personal requirements for my main professional tool is 1) It's the same on windows and Linux. I do my own stuff in Linux, but at work I have to use XP. This way I don't have to switch when changing OSes 2) It's the same for all development platforms, so I don't have to change it when I do Ruby coding, Java coding or anything else My choice is jEdit which is a modern programmable editor with a wealth of plugins for different languages and tasks. RubyPlugin + ProjectViewer + more I use the same keyboard shortcuts all the time, learn the tool, program my macros, get more efficient...

Yes, its still in development, but I have been using it nearly daily without a hint of trouble. YMMV. Here is a link to a blog of one of the primary developers of Ruby for Netbeans, Tor Norbye. Tor is cool, and the blog is very informative as it outlines his weekly development of Ruby for Netbeans: http://blogs.sun.com/tor/ And here is a link to the nightly build of Netbeans 6.0. Be sure to use the Update Center to auto-install all the Ruby stuff: http://www.netbeans.info/downloads/dev.php And, they are also considering a Ruby-only version of Netbeans (meaning, with all the Java stuff extracted out). Try here for that Hudson (I think this is the code name for the project) install. In my experience with it, it is also as stable as the "full Netbeans": http://deadlock.netbeans.org/hudson/job/ruby/ 2) Before Netbeans I was using Konquerer for my "file/project browser" and the Kate editor (that comes with a KDE install). I have to say that I was quite satisfied with that. But it won't give you syntax checking and the like (though the syntax coloring is nice). Still, I was quite content with it for some time. My advice would be to try Netbeans. I use it for my daily RoR work. It is great now, and will only get better (add more features) as they approach the official Netbeans 6.0 launch. Rob

I got one? I handcode HTML/CSS... But I still use dreamweaver to quickly view things. I am using dreamweaver 8. Is there a way to configure dreamweaver to interpret rhtml as html?

My dev team breaks down like this: - RadRails/Windows Vista: 1 - VIM/Ubuntu: 3 - Textmate/MAC: 1 I'm the Windows user and I really like RadRails.
on 2007-05-12 04:34
I will have to say Aptana (w/RadRails) is my current fav right now. You really can't beat the svn integration that allows for easy rollbacks and visual comparisons.

Guys, I'm using Netbeans 6 and it is great, lots of nice features and code completion, used on both Mac and Windows. Runs database migrations as well as script/generate and also debugging with breakpoints (I am told) but have not tried it. One thing though is I have only found success with Netbeans 6 Milestone 9 which can be tricky to find on their site. Apparently works with Milestone 8 but I had difficulties with this release. You need to download the full version of M9 and then only select Ruby and deselect all the Java and the Java enterprise servers stuff. (unless you're a Java developer, obviously!) Take care, Jon

I am a newbie and had to figure out what would work for me too. I use a windows laptop and though I used an IDE previously, I find that it is overkill for RoR. I am using an editor called "E", it is a textmate clone on windows. The bundles feature is a time saver and if you need to refactor a variable name or something like that, it has some cool editing features that help. If you need an IDE, RadRails is the best one out there. Having said that, netbeans looks like its going to be great, too buggy for me right now. Thanks Satish

1+ for jedit, simple, nice plugin system, works on win, linux. /IsBOF

Juan, I use RadRails on my Windows XP development machine and like it very much. I've tried to run it on my Linux Ubuntu 6.10 machine and have extracted the tar.gz but don't know how to start the program. I expect you laugh at me but would sure appreciate a pointer in this direction. David 775-885-9125

I wonder what it will cost, though! Cheers Mohit.

I for one, use Radrails, i think it's the best one i have tried yet.

I'm new also and haven't done any serious development work in Ruby on Rails (yet). But I do like Active State's free Komodo Edit: http://www.activestate.com/products/komodo_edit/ It runs on Windows, Linux or Mac OS X. I'm sure I'd like the Komodo IDE even more, but since I don't code for a living, it's hard to justify paying $295 for it. Sharon

I find it impossible to justify Komodo's cost and I do code for a living. There are way too many free alternatives to be paying more than a few bucks for a text editor. And even then it's still not a need, but more of a want. -- Greg Donald http://destiney.com/
