rcodetools is a collection of Ruby code manipulation tools. It includes xmpfilter and editor-independent Ruby development helper tools, as well as emacs and vim interfaces. Currently, rcodetools comprises: * xmpfilter: automagic Test::Unit assertions/RSpec expectations and code annotations * rct-complete: 100% accurate (editor-independent) code completion * rct-doc: document browsing and code navigator * rct-meth-args: precise method info (meta-programming aware) and TAGS generation * rct-fork: pre-load heavy library(Rails etc) and speed up rct-complete/rct-doc (server) * rct-fork-client: run Ruby programs from the current state of the rct-fork server * ruby-toggle-file: toggle implementation file and test file * rbtest: embedded Test::Unit for small scripts rcodetools includes and supersedes xmpfilter, which has been much improved and extended by rubikitch, ultimately resulting in the rct-* tools, which are almost entirely his work. See http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcodetools for further information and http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcodetools-screenshots for the screenshots/screencasts. What's new ========== User-visible changes since 0.5.0 -------------------------------- * "test-driven completion" (TDC) support for Emacs and vim (see README.TDC) * --test (-t), --filename options for rct-complete and rct-doc, allowing to specify the test to be run for 100% accurate completion/documentation in the corresponding implementation * ruby-toggle-file: finds the test file corresponding to a given implementation and vice versa * rct-fork, rct-fork-client: allow to eliminate the overhead due to library loading (esp. useful for Rails) * rbtest: executes unit tests in a single Ruby script * --fork, --rbtest, --detect-rbtest supported by several commands * xmpfilter's --spec now autodetects the RSpec version and generates specifications with the appropriate syntax Download ======== rcodetools can be installed with RubyGems: gem install rcodetools If you try this shortly after a release and you get an old version/a 404 error, please allow some time until the packages propagate to RubyForge's mirrors. rcodetools is available in tarball format. rcodetools' executables will run faster when installed this way, since RubyGems add a noticeable overhead. Usage ===== rcodetools can be used with any editor, but the distribution includes emacs and vim interfaces (contributions for other editors are welcome); see README.emacs and README.vim in the sources for more information.
