Ruby IDE

Posted 17 July 2006 - 01:59 AM

Hi all

I'm trying to learn Ruby. The default (Free) IDE that you get with the Ruby installer is FreeRIDE. I wrote a testApp and ran it with FreeRIDE - the IDE crashed on the first go. So my confidence in FreeRIDE is shaken. Anyone know of a good stable free IDE for Ruby?

Thanks

Plugin for Eclipse:

Although FreeRide is a good IDE...perhaps you should track the reason for the crash?

Ruby can also be coded in any text editor you wish...and run through the command line.

I'm rather fond of just pasting or using load to read code into irb, the interactive ruby interpreter. For actual development I just use vim. *shrug*

RadRails is the best IDE for Rails out there. It is essentially a packaged Eclipse with all the necessary plugins and generators. You might also want to look into Mongrel to replace webrick. It's a gem and can be easily installed.

If you are using Visual Studio, you may want to try Ruby In Steel (I admit a bias, I am one of its developers :) ). We have a free version which has syntax-color editing, code folding, multi-level undo, split-window editing, debugging (breakpoints, step-into, step-over, call-stack, drag&drop watch variables etc. etc.), integrated Rails development tools, Rails debugging, project management in the Solution Explorer, a docked 'run and evaluate' window and lots more...

Get it here...
http://www.sapphiresteel.com

We'll also be releasing a commercial edition in January with our new 'Cylon' debugger (which we believe to be the fastest Ruby debugger anywhere!) and complete syntax, scope and context sensitive IntelliSense.

all the best
Huw

Textmate for Mac. InType (alpha just released) is very similar, on Windows, and can use the same bundles. It looks great (but then again, doesn't run in WINE).

RadRails is very good for IDE.. I use komodo - same I use for Perl. So, far it has been good... I'm gonna transfer to Radrails pretty soon.

I just use notepad cause it is quick, and I don't think that the IDE's for Ruby are that good. The one that I have tried that works really well is the plug-in for eclipse, but I think that has some bugs in it too.

Hi, well I'm quite new to Ruby myself and just been introduced to Instant Rails. At uni we are using RadRails, it so simple and easy to use. I suppose you could use jEdit or better still Komodo.

My personal choice is RadRails, there is so much help available if you get stuck.
