DESCRIPTION

A pure Ruby text editor running on JRuby.

INSTALLATION

You must have Java installed.

$ sudo gem install redcar
$ sudo redcar install

NB the install will take a minute or so to complete as it has to download about 15MB of jar files.

USAGE

Run

$ redcar --help

for a list of options.

INSTALLING FROM SOURCE

If you want to contribute to Redcar, you can install it from the source code.

If you're running Windows, as a prerequisite, you'll need to install the rubyzip gem:

$ gem install rubyzip

You will need Ant installed. You will also need RSpec, Cucumber and JSON-JRuby installed as JRuby gems.

$ jruby -S gem install rspec cucumber json-jruby

Download from github, checkout the submodules and build JavaMateView.

$ git clone git://github.com/danlucraft/redcar.git
$ cd redcar
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ jruby bin/redcar install
$ jruby -S rake build

To run on Linux and Windows:

$ jruby bin/redcar

To run on OSX:

$ jruby -J-XstartOnFirstThread bin/redcar        

You may also need to install the rake, rspec and cucumber gems.

UPDATING A SOURCE BUILD

If you are running a source version of Redcar and you have pulled changes from master, then you may have to update your jars by updating and rebuilding:

$ git submodule update
$ jruby -S rake build

PROBLEMS?

TESTS

To run all specs and features:

$ jruby -S rake

NB. You must leave the test window focussed while the features run. Some of the tests will fail if the test process is in the background.
