RadRails 1.0 for Aptana Studio Is Out

Eclipse-based IDE for AJAX and Web developers who use scripting languages like Ruby, PHP, and JavaScript

"It has been a long time coming and includes a lot of new features and polish," said Chris Wiiliams, who runs the RadRails project. "We're especially proud of the progress we've made here at Aptana since we took over the project. RadRails 0.7.2 users will definitely want to check out this new release - it offers a more stable environment, full Rails 2.0 support, support for JRuby, and a boatload of new features."


Williams' comments came as Aptana today released RadRails 1.0 for Aptana Studio, a development plugin for Aptana Studio which itself can run standalone or be plugged into the Eclipse IDE alongside all that Eclipse has to offer.

For all users, RadRails 1.0 for Aptana Studio bundles the JRuby interpreter directly with the download so as to deliver instant previews directly in the IDE without the hassles of extra configuration and set up of a Ruby on Rails environment. In addition to running any Ruby code, managing gems, and doing the things a Ruby interpreter would do, JRuby also lets you directly integrate with Java.

Users who might prefer other Ruby interpreters such as the standard MRI Ruby distribution, Rubinius or others can  configure RadRails 1.0 for Aptana Studio to use those. And for those that really want to go deep and create or extend Rails tooling, RadRails 1.0 enables Eclipse itself to be scripted in Ruby via Eclipse Monkey, another open source project to which Aptana has been a key contributor.



“When I started using RadRails it was the only tool on the street that knew and loved Rails and Ruby,” said “Dr. Nic” Williams of Dr. Nic Academy, who provides Ruby on Rails training and services. “Even though there are now many IDEs that profess compatibility with Rails, Aptana/RadRails should still be a go-to editor for Rails development."

RadRails 1.0, the first major release of the RadRails software since Aptana became home to the community project last year. The free, open source download for RadRails 1.0 can be found at www.aptana.com.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
