Installing and Configuring Aquamacs (Emacs 22 for Mac OS X) with Ruby and Ruby on Rails Development NicetiesTuesday, August 14th, 2007
Personally, I like a highly portable text editor that is powerful enough to use as an IDE. TextMate, from what I hear, is pretty darn great, but by being limited to only Macs, TextMate doesn’t cut it for me. Emacs being emacs, it is quite possible to set it up to be as nice if not nicer than TextMate for Rails development. A good overview can be found at http://www.credmp.org/index.php/2006/11/28/ruby-on-rails-and-emacs/.
And WOW is emacs 22’s Tramp for remote file editing via SSH/SCP awesome! More on that at the end of this post.
