I'm currently using RadRails but considering other alternatives since that software gets buggier with each upgrade. Anyway, here is an online poll; would you guys mind participating in the 1st poll listed here? http://visualpatterns.com/polls.jsp

I'm using the latest Netbeans 6.0 milestone build, and it's Ruby on Rails support is really nice. I haven't found anything else that is free that feels as good to me.

Thanks, Dave. I've been hearing some good buzz about NetBeans' Ruby support, so I'll definitely check it out.

I've just downloaded and installed the m10 build myself. I've been using TextPad for RoR development for over a year and a half and haven't felt any need for an IDE, but I'm about to start a new position where use of Netbeans is required. Do you know of any tutorials for using Netbeans for RoR development? Thanks, Bill

Hi, I am currently using Komodo Edit 4.1. I find it OK for now. Decent Intellisense support (or whatever the name of it is) and really fine Generators feature that lets you generate models, controllers and scaffolding easily.

CodeGear's (http://www.codegear.com/) working really hard on an IDE. It it is in field testing right now. IMO, CodeGear's building an intuitive, innovative tool for the Ruby/Rails community and it should be remembered although it isn't available to the public just yet. Huw Collingbourne also built "Ruby In Steel", a Ruby/Rails plug-in for Visual Studio. You can find it here: http://www.sapphiresteel.com/. It might need adding to the survey.

I can't claim to have written Ruby In Steel entirely by myself, however ;-) You may also want to add Arachno to that list (no, we have absolutely no connection with them but it's an IDE which has been around for quite some time so should be among the choices). best wishes Huw Collingbourne -------------------- SapphireSteel Software http://www.sapphiresteel.com/

It's as simple as "File->New->Project", Select "Ruby->Ruby on Rails", tell it if you want to run native ruby or JRuby or if you want to import an existing rails app, and that's pretty much it. You have a project viewer and a file viewer, and syntax highlighting and everything, and you can right-click on the project to run generator scripts and other things.

It should also be noted that TextMate on the mac is the editor of choice for many ruby developers who use Mac, as is the Windows clone of it, e-TextEditor.

I like TextMate's elegantly simple feel. However, does anyone know if TextMate can display method and variable names, similar to how RadRails (and other plug-ins) do in the Eclipse Outline view?

I use the e text editor. Snippets are great. I tried using Netbeans and Aptana, but I found them maddeningly slow. On Jul 19, 7:46 am, Ben Knight <rails-mailing-l...@andreas-s.net>

I'm also using the RadRails plugin for Aptana. For the most part it's ok but sometimes buggy - especially when it comes to quoting and then color coding the text, which can get a little annoying, because you begin to think that you have an error in your code when there is not one.

Hi I am happily using Aptana RadRails. Tonight, I began to appreciate RadRails more after reading the really great virtues of nbRubyIDE. So much so, that I am x-checking feature by feature and learning more about the capability of Aptana RadRails in the process. You should also be aware of Tim Harpers tip on how to configure External Tools in Aptana Radrails On Sep 26, 10:25 pm, Ben Knight <rails-mailing-l...@andreas-s.net>
