Subject Re: IDE of choice?
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2008 16:26:01 GMT
I think having IDE integration (I mean: being able to edit the buildfile
with syntax highlight, autocompletion, tooltips, running a task inside the
IDE, etc) is very important for the adoption of Buildr on most IDE-minded
java shops, and some of them can see the lack of IDE integration as an
strong deciding factor.

Personally, I code almost everything with Emacs, and just very very rarely
use Eclipse. One thing I can say is that developers at the company I work
would like to have an Eclipse plugin to run buildr inside their IDE. And now
we have official JRuby support, you could have a full buildr runtime in the
IDE, Netbeans claims to be the best ruby-capable IDE and I guess it already
embeds JRuby.

So I think you should itch your own scratch, if you would like to see Buildr
integrated with your favorite IDE, and you got a chance to do it, go for it.
Blog about it, make some noise and more IDE users will be using buildr.

Shane, Luis, thanks for your interest on improving the Buildr user
experience!
