Notepad++ seems to be a great editor for Ruby, in XP Windows. However, I don't see any debug output, and have searched in vain for a solution. Please help or refer me.

Is anyone aware of a prepared Ruby-Notepad++ configuration? Notepad++ is great, but the wart I'm seeing is 'Run' (F5). Outputs to a DOS windoww, overlaying my code window. Would like Notepad++ to run as well intergrated as SciTE, which is packaged with the Ruby install for XP. I like Notepad++'s draggable tabs so various doc.rb's can be repositioned.

Would you consider a better Ruby editor, such as Komodo Edit?

Hi Mark, Yes, Komodo looks fine, however, it's config seems to have required some heavy reading and tweaking. It wouldn't just work out of the box with Ruby, with debugging. So I chose to continue looking for editors. Notepad++ seems ideal for me, a stand-alone programmer, and I like SciTE-based products, simple, clean and fast, direct.

Komodo IDE (as opposed to Edit) comes out of the box with debugging for Ruby, but it is not free. NetBeans has good debugging ability, and is free. The Ruby edition of NetBeans 6.5 is relatively lean and fast (it cuts a lot of bloat from the full edition). -- Mark.

You may also want to try Ruby in Steel. I haven't tried it (I require something that can work on Linux too) it but looks quite nice. http://www.sapphiresteel.com/ -- Mark.

I haven't used Notepad++, however here are some other free alternatives. http://freeride.rubyforge.org/wiki/wiki.pl http://sourceforge.net/projects/eric-ide Eric3 is a full featured Python (and Ruby) IDE http://www.easyeclipse.org/site/plugins/rubyeclipse.html

Thanks to all of you! Free, is not critical. I'll continue the evaluation with this education. Komodo does look great.

Yes, Komodo IDE (trial version) works fine. Takes long to boot up, long to disable/enable breakpoints, but looks great and debugs well. Notepad++ and SciTE are nice, agile 'sport vehicles' though. :) Thanks, Mark and David -- for the advice!

To be honest I can't find better than gvim Ok, it takes a few moments to know the basics but once you know how to save, open /browse files, and a few commands, this is perfect for any language : I use it for ruby/rails, java, actionscript/flex, html, css, php, c, whatever :) And the rails plugin makes it really cool for rails development

I'm using Netbeans which work on all systems. (Linux,Windows,Mac)

But I wanted the Netbean refactoring support and project management. So, when I edit a full application, I will use Netbens. Else, I will use gvim for simple editing.

I copy that, almost. Gvim is truly a great editor, well scripting is a pain, but I have not found an intuitive scripting for editors yet :(. But for debugging, Netbeans shines, I have it installed for this sole purpose. Cheers Robert -- Ne baisse jamais la tÃªte, tu ne verrais plus les Ã©toiles. Robert Dober ;)
