This package provides some helpful plugins and language definitions, for developing ruby and ruby on rails applications with gedit, the default gtk text/source editor. While gedit, in it’s default state, is a very vanilla text editor, it can be extended through plugins, written either in Python or C, making it a very simple but powerful development environment.


After cloning this repo, simply run the rake task (with sudo):

sudo rake setup

One other thing I would suggest, you can get emacs like navigation keys by setting desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme to “Emacs” in gconf.


If you have a particular plugin, snippet, or any other configuration tweak, you find helpful in transforming gedit into a ruby development environment, please fork this repository and contribute.

Further, if you like pretty colors, check out my other gedit repo,
