Looking for a Ruby IDE

I'm developing (yet) another project in Ruby and got tired of using Vim

I know it is still a somewhat unknown language and younger than other ones, however there are two promising IDEs:

FreeRIDE:

  • based on FOX (quite fast, much faster than GTK+), thus multiplatform
  • written in Ruby
  • seems to be THE standard Ruby IDE

    Ruby Development Tool:

  • based on Eclipse

    Being based on Eclipse is its most valued feature, to my taste (and the only remarkable one :P), since you can combine it with other plugins, such as Eclipse SVN plugin (instead of CVS)

    I recently tried CDT (C/C++ Development Tool) and found it quite nice. Eclipse is getting better and better, and it is looking as a very interesting platform for building an all-language framework

    New Advogato Features

    New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

    Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

    If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
