[ANN] Ruby In Steel 1.2 - Fast Debugging, 'Visual' Rails

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Huw Collingbourne, Apr 21, 2008.

  1. SapphireSteel Software has just released a major update to its Ruby and
    Rails IDE, Ruby In Steel Developer. This edition includes a unique
    visual drag and drop environment - The Visual Rails Workbench - for
    designing Rails applications plus a substantially update to the
    ultra-fast ‘Cylon’ debugger.

    DEBUGGER FEATURES

    Ruby In Steel has the fastest debugger for standard Ruby. In addition to
    all its existing capabilities (such as breakpoints, watch variables,
    call stack navigation, step into/out/over, locals, autos, drill-down
    debugging and debugging into ERb/RHTML templates) Ruby In Steel 1.2 adds
    the following debugging features:
    -- Tracepoints
    -- Conditional breakpoints
    -- Break on hitcount
    -- Run macro on break
    -- Break on exception
    -- Autos window user-configuration
    -- Dynamic debugging (evaluate code and change variable values on the
    fly)


    VISUAL RAILS WORKBENCH

    The principal features of the Visual Rails Workbench are:

    - Full page editing of complete web pages (composites of Rails
    layouts/views/partials)
    - Drag and Drop design - add controls from a toolbox
    - Set properties using the Property panel
    - Resize and move controls using mouse or keyboard
    - Split view code/form editing
    - Toggle ERb/RHTML editing between HTML editor and Rails (Ruby-aware)
    editor
    - Round-tripping between ‘web format’ HTML and ‘Rails format’ ERb/RHTML
    - Edit code as ERb/RHTML or as HTML
    - Document Navigator navigates document structure (HTML)/or methods
    (ERB/Ruby)
    - Quick navigation between controller and view
    - Import/Export to other web page design tools such as Dreamweaver
    - Save/restore named ‘versions’ of page designs to/from an archive of
    work in progress
    - Auto-backup of changes to templates
    - Support for Rails 1 and Rails 2


    JRUBY

    The new ‘JCylon’ debugger allows users to run and debug Sun’s Java-based
    JRuby right inside the Ruby In Steel environment. There is a docked
    JRuby console to interact with JRuby programs and integrated breakpoint
    debugging with watch variables, hover-and-drilldown etc.

    Registered Users of Ruby in Steel 1.x may upgrade to this version at no
    cost. Please uninstall the previous version before installing this new
    release using your key (key.bin), registered user name and serial
    number.

    60-DAY TRIAL

    The Trial period has now been extended to 60 days. If you wish to
    evaluate the software, download the full version and this will remain
    operational for 60 days. After that period, registration is required.

    LOW COST ‘TEXT EDITION’ AND FREE IRONRUBY EDITION

    In addition to the professional standard Ruby In Steel Developer,
    SapphireSteel Software also has a low cost Text Edition which has
    powerful Ruby and Rails editing and debugging (though not the
    Developer’s ultra-fast ‘Cylon’ debugger) and may be installed either
    into a regular or a free edition of Visual Studio 2008 for an all-in
    cost of $49. The free version of VS 2008 is part of the ‘all-in-one
    installer’ on the SapphireSteel Software site. There is also ‘IronRuby
    In Steel’ a free IDE for Microsoft’s IronRuby for .NET (currently in
    alpha).

    JRuby is not "Sun's". It belongs to the Ruby and JRuby communities.
