IDE for ruby on rails

*giggle*

Had to laugh. Must check it out anyway.

Everyone seems to love RadRails, but that must be the standalone
version they are talking about, the eclipse plugin seems a lot more
limiting somehow.

I didn't spend a lot of time with it though - I didn't want RadRails
learning curve adding to my Rails learning curve.

I think RadRails is possibly the *only* thing that can technically
qualify as a 'Rails IDE'.

I mostly use FreeRide that ships with Ruby itself. Its not great, but
I am training myself from first principles. I want to learn Rails
without any of the training wheels that an IDE provides.

There is also the IDE plugin route. For example:
RubyInSteel http://www.saphiresteel.com (plugin for VS2005)
RubyjEdit http://rubyjedit.org/ (plugin for jEdit)
JetBrains http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/RUBYDEV/Home (plugin
for IntelliJ Idea)
Karma http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1567 (plugin for VIM)

I use Komodo, largely because I have used it for Perl, XSLT, and Python,
but it also has support for Ruby and Rails, including:

* method autocompletion
* calltips (pulls the parameter signature from code and/or docs)
* nice auto-indenting, code folding, automatic 'end' placement, etc.
* Rails debugging
* Mixed context editing (knows about your Ruby code embedded in your
rHTML, and can edit either natively) (this feature only in beta right
now.

Can RadRails do these things?

- Mark.

I like RoRed- http://www.plasmacode.com - the fastest I’ve seen on windows.

Question about using Komodo and Rails, Is it possible to open a Rails
Project ? I haven't found a way as of yet.

You can create a new Komodo project, and import your top-level Rails
directory (recursive add). Is that what you're talking about, or are you
looking for something more?

In RadRails, I can have the application tree in a pane. I think
though directories would be fine.

Hi Pratik,

I use RadRails 0.7. I havent found a single error in it yet. But it lacks some feature like it doesnt have full intellisense support. I am downloading plasmacode now. I hope it will satisfy my needs!

Thanks!
