What editor or IDE do you use?

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'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.

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!
