Where's nbextras.org?


Updated Monday May 28: The machine is back up and running (and much faster than before). You can grab up to date builds from the old location again (and the wik installationi page points back to it again). The latest builds have both a fix for the RHTML problem as well as support for encoding properties on projects, so the old file.encoding=UTF-8 system property workaround should no longer be necessary.





The deadlock.nbextras.org machine, which I've been pointing to regularly as the best place to get up to date builds of the Ruby support, is off-line. It is being replaced by a brand new machine, much faster and more reliable, and should be back up on-line on Monday (May 28th).



Apologies to those of you relying on deadlock.nbextras.org for regular updates. The service should be getting a lot better from now on. The reason it's taking several days to perform the migration is that this is a volunteer-driven effort, so there's a bit of cooperation necessary to get the machine picked up at the ISP, the disks mirrored over to the new machine and the machine taken back in to the ISP and get back up and running.



In the meantime, I've set up a temporary location where you can get up to date bits. The instructions and URL will be kept up to date on this wiki page.

Hi Tor,

I decided to switch over and use the Ruby only IDE, and created a Wiki page to help people who fancy using it more comfortably on OSX

Fantastic! And better yet, with these instructions I should be able to pretty easily modify the build script (nbbuild/hudson/ruby) to do some Apple-specific packaging out of the box. I'll link to it from the Ruby installation page.

By the way, since you said you need UTF-8 support - I started some work on that too. Since I don't know much about encoding I haven't integrated this stuff yet, instead I uploaded a build which contains the fix to http://mediacast.sun.com/details.jsp?id=2772 and asked some people to take it for a spin. If you want to give it a try and check whether it works for you that would be great - as soon as I get thumbs up from somebody who's relying on for example UTF-8 support I'm going to integrate it. (When you run it, the Rails project type has an "Encoding" property.)

Thanks for fixing the nbrubyide dock icon issue. netbeans-rubyide-3.zip worked like a charm when I updated, and I've amended the RubyNetBeansOSX Wiki page to reflect that.

I'll be sure to check out the UTF-8 support!

FYI - the machine is back up and running now...

Hi Si, I've rolled your instructions into a build script running on the build server, so there's an OSX-specific zip you can download now which should contain an OSX bundle that can be run directly (build #1366 and later - http://deadlock.nbextras.org/hudson/job/ruby/)

The OSX build is great chaps. But... By setting the runnable app in the info.plist to 'executable' and sym linking to that, it saves preferences and the line to ~/Library/Application Support/executable. Probably want to change it to nbrubyide, so that it can derive $(APPNAME) (as used in the .conf file) propertly.

That's true, good spot. I'll update the Wiki page, and thanks for the comment!
