Hi, I'm pretty new to RoR but I like it very much. My problem I haven't find any refactoring support (for example renaming a controller, or extracting one). Are there any plugins/tools for such a job? Or are there any work on that issue. IMO for agile development ease in change would be pretty nice.

IMO for agile development ease in change would be pretty nice. That would be editor-specific. Refactoring support for Ruby sucks, but it doesn't have to: http://www.oreillynet.com/onlamp/blog/2008/05/dyna... I typically... - Baseline everything by integrating it - svn mv a file by name - svn mv the test file - immediately open an editor and global search-n-replace the name - run all the tests & integrate The search-and-replace should hit the matching test case, by name. I use 'svn mv' first because I'm too paranoid to do the search-n-replace first. There might be a technical reason... -- Phlip

Thx Philip, That's pretty similar to what I do. But again might there be (or is it possible to build) some scripts to do certain refactoring tasks specific to Rails. For example "script/refactor rename_controller product_controller, admin or "script/refactor extract_controller product_controller, admin, login:action, new:action" etc.. I'm too new to Rails (even Ruby) to create such things. And I can't even imagine if it's possible 2008/10/4 Phlip <firstname.lastname@example.org>
