What's the best editor or environment for Rails development in Windows Vista? I've been doing Rails development personally on my Mac at home. But now that we're going to start using it at work I need to find a good setup on our Windows desktops. -- Chris Stewart firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.compiledmonkey.com

It is now owned(?)/developed by Aptana: http://www.aptana.com. It is based on Eclipse. Not sure about any others. I can recommend some sites for setting up Subversion for version control if you are interested also. Mike

If you are using Visual Studio, you may want to try Ruby In Steel: editing, debugging, project management etc. Two editions - free and commercial. The commercial edition also has a very fast debugger (drag and drop watch variables, hover+drill+down debug inspectors, call stack, step into/out/over) and full analytical IntelliSense. http://www.sapphiresteel.com best wishes Huw ---------------------- SapphireSteel Software

No way to do this into Aptana interface? thanks -- Davi Vidal firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com -- "Religion, ideology, resources, land, spite, love or "just because"...

When I have to turn my PC on, I use the 'e' editor, tortoiseSVN, mysql command line

I maintain Eclipse for Rails, a package similar to RadRails / Aptana, but customizable. I don't market it too much (too afraid of what that would mean in terms of supporting it) but I am astounded by how many people actually like using it. I've gotten mostly positive feedback http://www.napcs.com/products/rails/Eclipse/index.htm I personally use this, but I use e (www.e-texteditor.com) a lot too. You have to have tortoiseSVN though, it's one of the best ways to use and manage a repository. I wrote a shortcut for O'Reilly that will show you how to get a solid development environment running on Windows. http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/railsonwindows/ Sorry for the shameless self-promotion, but I figured it would help some people.

Thanks for the replies. I like the concept of e-texteditor, but it sucks to pay for a beta product. I'll have to play around with the Eclipse plug-in solutions and see what works out.

I'm not sure what the exact details are, but I think you can still use it after the trial expires.

Try Netbeans dev version. It has excellent support for ruby and rails. You can get a slimmed down ruby only version of Netbeans here: http://deadlock.nbextras.org/hudson/job/ruby/ This page is automatically updated with the latest builds. :-) prabhakar
