Regarding IDE

If you enjoy IDEs.and already use Eclipse at work.
Eclipse 3.4 with the Rad Rails plugin is okay to use.
you don’t have to learn new keyboard commands.

Also a replacement for scite that has a file browser is notepad++(windows only), it doesn’t have any erb syntax highlighting though.

VIM in my case is the best “IDE” for my work, i do everyting, is quickly to lern and run in every OS.

I was originally going to recommend using Vim myself as I have now
gone back to it even after trying out other alternatives. Once the
commands get in your fingers, there is no going back. Rails.vim and
some other plugins really make it ideal ... IMHO.

I have to agree, I cant live with out my VIM and my bash shell..maybe is
because I learn to code 15 years a go under unix
but I can't use any GUI for this things, no matter what language, it
just slows me down instead of making things easier like others say.
nothing is faster than your fingers :wink:

This is a good way to configure VIM for RoR:

Try VIM, my RAM is for my developments, not for my IDE :stuck_out_tongue:

As a really old programmer, I have to go with emacs. I've been using
it since 1980 so I'm past the learning curve - mostly...

My setup right now, on a Mac, is aquamacs with the rinari macro
package. Does a nice job of code formatting with color which I find
helps when I've forgotten how many ends I need.

It sits in the right space between a fullup belt and suspenders IDE
and raw naked command line with a text editor. I also use
NetBeans7.0M1 when I want to be mindlessly lazy.
