Rails IDE

I use RadRails sometimes. What evidence do you have that there will be no more releases? A quick look around the home page [ http://radrails.org ] revealed nothing.

Thanks,

Hi, it's not necessary to use an IDE to do serious work within Rails
becuase there have been many Rails applications built without it.
However, this might not be true for other languages and frameworks.
Finally, if you're really in need of an IDE, then you might want to
give Komodo IDE 4.0 a try from activatestate.com. One can find a
feature list at the following:

Good luck,

+1. Who can really develop Java applications whithout an IDE whith strong
built-in autocompletion feature?
The point is that Ralis is based on Ruby. When you're seeking for a
method, just translate your idea into english and 'VoilĂ '!
Obviously, the console is your friend.

"Is there any IDE at all which I can use to do some serious work?"

Any IDE from the list above to notepad can be used to do serious work.
An IDE is merely a helpful tool not a requirement.

I can. Maybe it's familiarity but java's naming conventions make a
hell of alot more sense to me than rubys does. toString is alot more
guessable than to_s. Most of the core ruby functions don't make alot
of sense.

Good for you! :slight_smile:

Absolutely! And so does writing 10 times as much code to get anything done...

:wink:

I guess this got taken the wrong way. I didn't mean to insult ruby/
rails. I love them! I'm just sick of hearing the argument that ruby is
like programming in native language when it clearly is not and when
some things are counter intuitive for those of us used to other
languages.
