Could you people help me by saying a good Ruby compatible IDE in Ubuntu and its installation and settings with Ruby environment? I really need that one.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @JorgeCastro only have shown there what are the IDEs available for ubuntu, but none of the configuration related topic is there. Thus here I have posted back – Arup Rakshit Feb 11 '13 at 19:19
  • @PythonLikeYOU Your question asks What is a good one? not what about configuration settings etc, so it is a duplicate of the IDE question. We don't want many questions about IDE's spread over the whole site. – Seth Feb 11 '13 at 19:39
  • @Seth Yes, You are right- I just updated my decription. But I forgot to mention that. But still if you guys want I can delete my post.But in that case my trouble will not be reduced,still I am ready o delete my post. – Arup Rakshit Feb 11 '13 at 19:48

You should take a look at Aptana Studio. It's available as standalone version or Eclipse Plugin. It provides many features for web development. It is really nice for PHP and Ruby. It also has Ruby On Rails features on board.

You can download it at http://www.aptana.com/.

  • in Ubuntu how to do that? guide me please. – Arup Rakshit Feb 11 '13 at 19:15

    Just download the zip-package on the website. Unpack the files, store the folder somewhere (for example in /opt) and launch the AptanaStudio3 file. This will start Aptana Studio. – TIIUNDER Feb 11 '13 at 19:18
  • Yes,but how would it communicate with ruby? That's my question actually? Is there any custom settings needed? official site saying it is tested with ubuntu 9. But I am using latest version of Ubuntu. – Arup Rakshit Feb 11 '13 at 19:21
  • It also works with newer Ubuntu versions. How should it communicate? If you edit/create ruby-files (.rb), it will use syntax highlighting for example. And it will use default ruby commands like "ruby". For that you need to install Ruby first. – TIIUNDER Feb 11 '13 at 20:02
  • Yes, I have Ruby 1.9.3 in place. but as you told in any place I can unpack it. Is it so? Or any specific folder I need to keep it ? – Arup Rakshit Feb 11 '13 at 20:04
