rcodetools is a collection of Ruby code manipulation tools. It includes xmpfilter and editor-independent Ruby development helper tools, as well as emacs and vim interfaces. Currently, rcodetools comprises: * xmpfilter: automagic Test::Unit assertions/RSpec expectations and code annotations * rct-complete: 100% accurate (editor-independent) code completion * rct-doc: document browsing and code navigator * rct-meth-args: precise method info (meta-programming aware) and TAGS generation rcodetools includes and supersedes xmpfilter, which has been much improved and extended by rubikitch, ultimately resulting in the rct-* tools, which are almost entirely his work. See http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcodetools for further information. What's new ========== * --dev: adds project directories to $: * --completion-class-info: list completion candidates and class info * display completion candidates with description, both in emacs and vim (using the menu+preview window). See the screenshots/screencasts at http://eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcodetools-screenshots Download ======== rcodetools can be installed with RubyGems: gem install rcodetools If you try this shortly after a release and you get an old version/a 404 error, please allow some time until the packages propagate to RubyForge's mirrors. rcodetools is available in tarball format. rcodetools' executables will run faster when installed this way, since RubyGems add a noticeable overhead. Usage ===== rcodetools can be used with any editor, but the distribution includes emacs and vim interfaces (contributions for other editors are welcome); see README.emacs and README.vim in the sources for more information.

Hello, thanks for the new release, it's great to have real auto-complete. rct-complete works fine with vim for me, but I can't get rct-doc to work with vim. In the video at http://www.eigenclass.org/hiki.rb?rcodetools-0.5.0 it seems that you can get a list of all possible completions and if you navigate over the candidates it shows you the doc information. Could you please show me your vimrc settings that enables that feature (if it's supposed to work like that)? With best regards, Fabian

Yes, that's the way it's meant to work :) Completion candidates will be shown if you set completeopt=menu,preview The extra information shown in the preview window can be enabled with let g:rct_completion_use_fri = 1 " 0 by default (disabled) The above will make rcodetools.vim use FastRI's fri to obtain the RI information for the completion candidates. In this case, installing FastRI from the tarball is a good idea, since the startup time is about ~10 times slower when you install with RubyGems... README.vim details how to disable the preview window when the candidate list is too long. HTH,

Hello Mauricio, thanks for your reply. The completion works fine for me but I can't get help integration to work. There is neither a preview window nor help integration in the list of completion candiates like in your video (I tried your tips of course). Do you have any ideas what else to try? My setup is gvim under winxp. Regards, Fabian P. S.: My first post was dropped by google groups...

My setup is gvim under winxp. Is FastRI working OK for you otherwise? rcodetools.vim uses fri to obtain the completion candidate info; if fri failed, both the preview window and the extra info in the menu would be missing. Also, if you installed FastRI from the tarball (as recommended, since it will make lookups much faster than using RubyGems) you might have to create some .bat or .cmd wrapper (similar to those created at install time by RubyGems). The next FastRI release will use a pre-install hook to generate them when installing on win32.
