When I started out with Rails, I was using Notepad++ and it served my needs fine. Recently, I made the switch to the excellent RadRails IDE. I’m still learning my way around this Eclipse based tool, but overall I’m very impressed. I just discovered another excellent Ruby on Rails blog - Dr Nic. In his latest post, he has put together a config file for using “snippets” within RadRails. I’ve read lots of praise for the defacto RoR editor on the Mac, TextMate, and one of its best features is snippets. Well, now RoR developers on Windows have snippets too. Great stuff!
