This has been a long time coming. Last year, I was privileged to have
Tom
Enebo for my mentor during JRuby’s Google Summer of Code. We made a lot
of
progress on RSense and JRubyParser, but realizing that rsense’s complex
and
error-prone installation was likely a big reason RSense never took off
before, I wanted to really nail down those aspects and GSoC ended before
I
got done.

I ran out of steam afterwards and took a long break, but kept coming
back
to it. Finally, I pushed out a beta about a week ago, but wasn’t ready
to
announce it here because it had some performance characteristics I was
unhappy with. Those should be much better now. So without further ado,
let
me link:

RSense Sees All <http://rsense.github.io/>
RSense organization on github <https://github.com/rsense>

Currently there are plugins for atom.io
<https://atom.io/packages/rsense>
and Textmate 2 <https://github.com/rsense/rsense.tmbundle>. I’m
currently
working on a Sublime Text plugin. I hope the community will provide Vim
and
Emacs plugins, but I’ll get to them eventually if I have to.

Installation is simple: gem install rsense or add it to your
application’s
Gemfile. I plan many improvements over the next few months, so be sure
to
check for updates frequently. Run it with rsense start. It can be
stopped
with rsense stop.

If you have questions or concerns about using RSense, please come by our
gitter chat:

I expect there to be a number of bugs to shake out of RSense. Please
report
any that you encounter.

The potential for tools that build on top of RSense are pretty
fantastic:
bug-detection, refactoring, and ideas I’ve not dreamed of.

I’ll be speaking about RSense in more detail at this year’s JRubyConfEU,
so
keep on the lookout for that. In the meantime, if I can help you get
setup,
write a plugin for your editor or IDE of choice, or understand the
implementation better so you can work on some tool that builds on
rsense,
please contact me.

Excellent to see RSense come out of the ashes.  It will be great to see
you
again at JRubyconfEU and see the improvements you have been doing since
last years GSoC project!
