For what it's worth, I use RadRails on both Linux and Windows. But,
lately, I've been using RoRED on my Windows laptop, as it is much
leaner and faster.

I tried all of them ( except RubyInSteel, I have it, and even sterted it
in my VS session, but not played) and
I found that no one is providing autocomplete. I am still waiting if
someone will implement it.
As well I am missing built-in possibility to use scp/sftp sessions to
work with remote files on my Linux box
LXR-like code browsing - I gonna be happy.

All the Best!

Install the jEdit FTP plugin from the Plugin Manager window…it does sftp out of the box.

Thanks a lot for the clue. I never used jEdit before ( even I heard
about it a lot ), I just downloaded it, and installing different
plug-ins. It looks quite nice. I am going to play with it, and I will
share my thoughts and feelings about doing RoR jEdit way.

All the Best!

As most people understand it, that's not autocomplete. You can call
it macros or snippets or whatever.

Real autocompletion means that things like method names will
automatically available and completed as references to them are typed,
without having to predefine anything except the method itself.

It's a subtle difference, but important enough to keep straight.

    This is different. This is not real auto-complete.

    Okay. I tried jEdit, and I was impressed by it. It has SFTP and it
has autocomplete I wanted.
And it's surprisingly quite fast.

All the Best!

I am thinking about some hack, around ruby interpreter. when you do
ruby -c it complies the code
but not executes it. If you can get that execution tree, you will have
an complete information for

You are doing the very good job by making your RiS. The problem is that
your product can be used only
on VS which is not multi-platform. In this case I more interested in
jEdit with SFTP plugin, or even better
in VIM plugin with the idea I just shared in my previous email, with
Intellisense feature via hacking the
Ruby parser unit.

I am most of my time using the text console on remote server.

The Ruby applications developed using Ruby In Steel are not platform
dependent, however. We have made no modifications to the Ruby
interpreter or toolset so any apps you create with Ruby In Steel have
the same cross-platform portability as all others.
    I was not talking about the Ruby application code itself. I was
talking about the VS as a development platform
which is not platform-independent.
    In this case Eclipse is have more chances to be more popular then
VS, because it is platform-independent
and has the same features as a VS has, and second of all Eclipse if free
and anyone can make a plugin for Eclipse
as well as anyone can download it for free.

    I do understand that you are making commercial product and you
probably have a family you have to feed like I do
but open-source just changed the way ow making business in the software
area, now we as a programmers have to find
different models of selling business, not directly on the software.

I am not convincing you to move out of the model you choose but just
shared my feelings about the profession I spent 23
years on and I see how it changes. At this moment it more profitable to
be in hardware sales and in support than to be
a programmer. It looks like we are going back to the sixties-seventies
when software was just a free addition to the hardware :slight_smile:

Not all Eclipse plug-ins are free (as-in speech or beer).
