The JBuilder team is hard at work on building an IDE for Ruby which is now available for beta testing. You’ll need to create a CodeGear Developer Network account to join though it’s pretty easy as those things go. Joe McGlynn is the Product Manager and he’s got a lot of good content on his blog related to Ruby so be sure to check it out. The official press release is available here.
Here is a list of key features:
- A complete IDE with full support
for Ruby and Rails, enabling advanced development features such as Code
Completion, Refactoring, type browsing and navigation
- Innovative new “Commanders” that uniquely merge the power of
the command line with the ease of use and productivity of the IDE,
Wizards and Code Insights
- Dependency visualization and navigation to seamlessly work
with all resources regardless of their relationship, location or format
- A full set of development and deployment modules including Ruby, Rails, Gems and Database
