I finally got the slides online from Rich Kilmer’s FreeRIDE presentation at
RubyConf 2002 (sorry it took me so long). You can find them here:

Thank you.

How soon before we can resume chanting, “source code! source code!”?

James

Oh, come on. No sound for the last slide? :slight_smile:

Why Not Use whats there?

Thanks

We are very, very close (don’t we always say that ;-). I just finished
putting together a final “ToDo List” for the FreeRIDE release. You can see

CVS! CVS!

Its open source! open source!

Extensibility IN RUBY was the key thing for us. We wanted the IDE to be
written in/extensible in Ruby itself. The extensions we have in mind
are numerous, and fall far outside what you traditionally see in IDEs.

a) RDE (which is Ruby specific) is written in Pascal. Not plugin based.
b) Eclipse is written in Java and is huge (54MB w/sdk). Imagine telling
folks to download that + Java to develop for this nice lightweight
language. Ouch.
c) Emacs…well if you are an Emacs user there will never be anything
better, but for the rest of humanity…there is FreeRIDE :wink:
d) ActiveState. No current (or stated) support for Ruby until a
business model develops.

Some (but not all) of the points mentioned were:

  • RDE is a Windows-only IDE
  • Eclipse is a huge download
  • Although ActiveState’s Komodo IDE has some support
    for Ruby syntax in its editor, they haven’t really
    made any firm commitment to more Ruby support at this time.

And as I pointed out during Rich’s presentation, the use of Emacs would
be in direct conflict with one of their other goals: “Does Not Suck”.

Hope this helps,

Lyle

From the Wiki:

Deployment

  1. Create Linux RPMs
  2. Create Debian packages
  3. Create tarballs
  4. Write installation instructions
  5. Create windows installer

Don’t forget us Mac heads!

  1. Create Mac OS X dmg file,

or better yet,

  1. Create fink package (and submit it to fink).

c) Emacs…well if you are an Emacs user there will never be anything
better, but for the rest of humanity…there is FreeRIDE :wink:

I was going to mention vi, but then decided against it.

Firstly, thank you to both Lyle & Rich for replying.

Hmm, I’ll be interested to see / hear what they are about. Have to have
a poke around your site.

One feature I heard about in Intellij that sounds quite “neat” is that
it grays out unused variables & import statments.

b) Eclipse is written in Java and is huge (54MB w/sdk). Imagine telling

Mm, it is a touch heavy weight. It is currently though my ide of choice
at home simply because it does cover the 3 languages I dabble with
C/C++, Java & Ruby. At work its Vi & Source Navigator :slight_smile:

c) Emacs…well if you are an Emacs user there will never be anything
better, but for the rest of humanity…there is FreeRIDE :wink:

Agreed.

Well I look forward to trying FreeRide when you kick it out the door :slight_smile:

Good luck & God Speed

Rob

We haven’t forgotten. Unfortunately, FOX does not current support the Mac,
so we won’t be able to have a Mac version for this release.

I believe that Mac support for FOX is “in the works”, but we are also going
to take a dual GUI rendering approach and be able to use either FOX or
wxWindows (which does have Mac support). I am personally working on the Ruby
bindins to wxWindows precisely for this purpose.

Sorry to make you wait :frowning:

Curt

We are using Fox and right now it only runs on Linux and Win32…

I have an OS X machine myself, but cannot use FreeRIDE on it…yet :frowning:

Now, if you have Fink and Fox and FXRuby installed…then it should
work.

What? No FreeBSD port?

Forget vi, you cannot even select text using it (you have to press
at the start and the beginning of a block to get the line numbers which
you have to type in for the command). Also, vi doesn’t have ZQ for “quit
and don’t save”, as well as no syntax-highlighting.

Therefore I use vim and not vi.

One feature I heard about in Intellij that sounds quite “neat” is that
it grays out unused variables & import statments.

Oooooooh, there’s a LOT more than that: all sorts of completion, method lists,
code templates, type error alerts, refactoring, JUnit/Ant/CVS integration…

It is one of the most impressive pieces of software I have ever seen. However,
I have to say that Ruby doesn’t need half the features IntelliJ provides
because it is so lightweight (yet durable). Basically, Java requires an
intelligent IDE to make it usable. Ruby has most of this usability out of the
box.

I’m sure we’ll see some very clever features plugged in to FreeRIDE, though.
Even more if the interpreter can be made to generate useful information to
reveal program structure, etc.
