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: [image: Gitter chat] <https://gitter.im/rsense/rsense> 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! -Tom
