RadRails, A Ruby on Rails IDE

Posted on

I’ve been looking for a good, cross-platform IDE for doing my Rails work. I’m currently using Eclipse with a lot of plugins (thanks to this blog entry). It works great, but it’s a little slow, and takes a while to set up. Now there’s RadRails, an Eclipse based IDE made just for Ruby on Rails development. It’s free, open source, cross-platform, and it works. They’re now at version 0.5 and developing at an amazing pace.  It runs much faster than Eclipse with all those plugins I’m using now.  There are still some bugs, but I think any future Rails projects will probably start in RadRails.  Also, be sure to check out the podcast that the developers put together.  It’s quite random, but funny and informative.
