I’ve always used vim as my main editor, but I thought I’d try RadRails since so many Rails people rave about it.
Installing it on Ubuntu Jaunty is a bit non-obvious:
- sudo aptitude install openjdk-6-jre (or your preferred jre)
- download and unpack aptana zip to ~/.aptana
- download and unpack xulrunner to ~/.xulrunner
- create a script like ~/bin/aptana:
#!/bin/bash MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=~/.xulrunner if [ $LD_LIBRARY_PATH ]; then LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH else LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME fi export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH ~/.aptana/AptanaStudio -vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/bincomments powered by Disqus
