Aptana Ajax IDE: Brings together RDT and RadRails

Category: Aptana, Rails

Aptana made news when they brought in RadRails, and now they have consolidated their Ruby support by announcing the incorporation of the Ruby Development Team project into the Aptana IDE:

The Aptana IDE is targeted at AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) style development and provides support for JavaScript, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and HTML and is fully integrated with FireBug for JavaScript debugging. The Aptana IDE is cross-platform, open-source, and free; with the addition and integration of RadRails and RDT, the Aptana IDE will make “Ajax on Rails” a reality, company officials said.

I have been trying out Coda on the Mac, and it is pretty nice for mainstream Web development.

Any chance the rails features will be modular? Aptana’s pretty bloated as it is.

Yes, we will make the various server language development features pluggable, so you can choose how you want to configure your IDE.

It doesn’t seem possible to load RadRails without all the Aptana bloat. Why is this? People don’t want all this other cruft, many people just want to work on Ruby!
