DESCRIPTION

A Ruby text editor.

  • written in Ruby from the ground up
  • runs on JRuby (a fast, compatible Ruby implementation)
  • is cross-platform (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows)
  • highly extensible

Some Redcar features:

  • supports Textmate themes and snippets
  • split screen mode
  • syntax checking for many languages
  • built in REPLs for Ruby, Groovy, Clojure and Mirah.

Some (current) limitations:

  • Only supports UTF-8 file encodings (and therefore ASCII)

INSTALLATION

You must have Java installed [1]. Redcar is easiest to install as a gem. After installing the gem there is one further install step:

$ sudo gem install redcar
$ redcar install

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

[1] Sun Java or OpenJDK work. Gcj is known not to work.

USAGE

Run

$ redcar --help

PROBLEMS?

INSTALLING FROM SOURCE

If you want to contribute to Redcar, you can install it from the source code and make modifications before submitting a patch.

If you're on any platform, you'll need the bundler and rake gems installed as prerequisites. If you're running Windows, you'll also need to install the rubyzip gem:

$ gem install rubyzip

Download from github, checkout the submodules and install the jars:

$ git clone http://github.com/redcar/redcar.git
$ cd redcar
$ bundle
$ rake initialise
$ ruby bin/redcar install

To run:

$ ruby bin/redcar

Updating a source build

If you are running a source version of Redcar and you have pulled updates from master, then you may have to update your local repo:

$ rake initialise
$ ruby bin/redcar install

TESTS

NB. Redcar features are known to work with Cucumber 0.9.2, and known NOT to work with Cucumber < 0.9

To run the tests you need JRuby installed. You also need rspec and cucumber installed as JRuby gems. See jruby.org for this, or install with rvm.

To install the necessary gems:

$ jruby -S bundle install

To run all specs and all features:

$ jruby -S rake

Specs

On OSX:

$ jruby -J-XstartOnFirstThread -S spec plugins/#{plugin_name}/spec/

On Linux/Windows:

$ jruby -S spec plugins/#{plugin_name}/spec/

To just run all specs:

$ rake specs

Features

On OSX:

$ jruby -J-XstartOnFirstThread bin/cucumber --exclude ".*fixtures.*" plugins/#{plugin_name}/features

On Linux/Windows:
