Ruby Development in NetBeans IDE 7.1

Geertjan Wielenga

Yesterday Tom Enebo announced the availability of the community Ruby plugin for NetBeans IDE 7.1.

Installs without a hitch. Seems to work as one would expect. Here you see the Projects window showing a structured view of a Ruby sample project, together with the Ruby editor:

As always, start your development work by going to File | New Project and then select one of the Ruby or Ruby on Rails templates that have been registered there by the plugin.

    Hi Geertjan,

    is netbeans 7.0.1 automatically updated (via normal update mechanism at some point) to 7.1 or is manual update required?

    Hi Geertjan,

    As far as, I know Netbeans and Netbeans Platform are OSGi based/driven, then I think It should be able to manage multiple versions of Modules and Netbeans core libraries and modules with a default version and also an options to change default version of any modules and enable/disable any version of modules, as per developer needs, as there are some Module which work in one Netbeans version but does not work or not available for another Netbeans version.
