Installing Eclipse with Ruby / Rails support

February 28, 2007

eclipse_logo.gifAs stated in my blog, I am having a look at the most well-known Ruby / Rails IDE competitors.
Thus I had a try on Eclipse platform as I couldn’t get RadRails 0.7.2 Standalone version to work with latest RDT plugins that come with refactoring notably.
Version we will install :
Eclipse 3.2.1 with RDT Stable Release (to have a stable environment) or Nightly Build Plugin (in my case 0.8.0.702111959NGT) to test latest RDT features, and RadRails Plugin 0.7.2
Once you installed Eclipse, you need to install those 2 plugins.
– Help Software Update / Find And Install / Search for new features to Install /
Then Add the new Remote sites :

Eclispe Install RadRails PluginEclispe Install RDT Plugin

Once you parametrized the Ruby SDK in the options, you are ready!

  1. One important thing which was not mentioned and caused me headache for 2 days is to verify which Java VM eclipse is using. On my ubuntu system, it was using gcj Java vm. This was causing problems when I tried to install Radrails and RDT plugins. I had to uninstall eclipse-gcj and then everything installed properly.


  2. RadRails is currently broken (still not released) for Eclipse 3.4 and up.
