    I'm pretty new to Ruby. What editor or IDE do you use? I usually use VIM
    for a lot of my coding. Rubymine looks pretty cool.

    Vim all the way. For me, fits the Ruby mantra of keeping things simple but flexible.

    Vim too here. There's only one real downside here (for me, anyway): I'm
    used to languages using parenthesis and thus I'm used to navigate a lot
    with the % key (jump between parenthesis). Not so with ruby, to my
    knowledge there's nothing you can make % to do jump between opening
    begin/class/etc. and closing end. Would love be proved otherwise here.

    get matchit.zip !
    Thet let's you dynamically add more pairs using b:match_words which
    should already be implemented for ruby.
    (I recommend using vim-addon-manager for installing plugins)

    Are you asking me ? No - never used it.

    Vim is powerful due to its modal editing.

    However also Netbeans etc have Ruby support and Vi like keybindings.

    So it also depends on what will done - eg whether rails support is
    required etc.

    I prefer RubyMine (http://www.jetbrains.com/ruby/). It's the closest thing
    I've seen to a Visual Studio or Delphi style IDE (minus the UI editor of
    course).

    I'm also a vi user.

    I have a variation of interactive_editor I use inside irb and pry.

    Emacs, as always. These days I also toss RubyMine into the mix for its
    refactoring, Cucumber support, and project indexing. I set up a
    keybinding to open files in Emacs for serious editing.

    I do everything in the terminal - usually a Screen session with windows for
    bash, Emacs, rails console, and rails server. Back when I used IDEs, I
    started with Eclipse + Aptana and later NetBeans, which was actually quite
    good, but I would say I'm many times faster now using simpler tools than I
    ever was with an integrated package.

    Janus is sometimes described as being textmate for vim:

    OMG! Developing finally becomes real fun again. Thank you so much! It
    really speeds up developing, especially since I switched to the common
    two spaces for a tab now (my eyes are trained to four spaces) it saves
    my a lot time. Again, thanks for the hint!
