More JEdit macros for rails

Posted by Jim Morris on Thu May 31 13:27:46 -0700 2007

I have been using JEdit more and more for my rails development, I have gone back and forth between it and Epsilon, however JEdit is starting to win out. I have upgraded to the latest pre version (4.3pre9).

I have modified a number of macros to do my bidding, and I dumped the Ruby Plugin because I kept running into things it did that I disliked, and it still seems a little buggy.

A HAML edit mode for JEdit

Posted by Jim Morris on Fri Dec 01 18:09:47 -0800 2006

I've just started a new RoR project and thought I'd try out HAML for the views instead of rhtml.

Seeing as I just switched to JEdit, I looked for a HAML language mode, and to my surprise no one had done one yet.

JEdit Ruby/Rails Snippets or superabbrevs

Posted by Jim Morris on Fri Nov 24 19:05:52 -0800 2006

I imported the rest of the Textmate ruby and rails snippets I had to combine them into the one ruby file though.

I have added about 80 new ones to the existing ones by Scott Becker that I found here

JEdit - Textmate for the rest of us?

Posted by Jim Morris on Tue Nov 21 23:20:07 -0800 2006

OK after expounding on how much I like Epsilon as an editor, I finally hit a wall with it. I wanted tabs of the currently open files, and it simply does not provide that facility yet. (I know all modern editors do!). On X11 (IE Linux and OS/X) Epsilon is not really a graphical app, it does open an X11 window, but within it most dialogs and lists (like buffer lists etc) are text, a little like a curses app. The advantage is it opens really fast, and loads huge files pretty fast. The downside is you don't get all those nice windowing facilities like movable pop-up windows, dialogs, trees and tabs!

So after hearing so much about JEdit, I bit the bullet and gave it a whirl. Following the instructions from a number of blogs (too numerous to mention) I installed it on my KUbuntu Linux box, with all the plugins people recommend, and of course the Ruby plugin and SupperAbbrevs (The beta version), so I have my snippets!
