RadRails 1.0 Released

Category: Announcements, Aptana, Rails, Screencast

Aptana took over the RadRails open source project a few months back, and now have fully integrated it with Aptana Studio with the RadRails 1.0 release.

RadRails 1.0 runs as a plug-in to Aptana Studio. So in addition to all the Ruby on Rails IDE goodies and the integrated Rails shell command-line console, developers get the great HTML, CSS, DOM, JavaScript and Ajax features in Aptana Studio, which can run stand alone or within Eclipse to that all your other Eclipse tools can be right there as well.

The new version has a slew of new and enhanced functionality such as:

  • Rails 2.0 support
  • JRuby support
  • Bundled auto-installing gems for rails development
  • A Ruby profiler for Pro users
  • An RDoc preview view
  • Extended RHTML/ERb color preferences
  • Code completion for ActiveRecord model fields and finders
  • Code completion suggesting method call arguments
  • Significant expansion of code warnings and analysis, including syntax changes from Ruby 1.8 to 1.9
  • An improved look and feel

You can watch a screencast of the product at work or a full feature list.

Aptana continues to add new functionality to its products as it tries to hit the “best tools for Web development with scripting languages” vision.
