TextMate Withdrawal; jEdit to the Rescue
Since my powerbook crapped out on me (long story to be continued), I've been going through TextMate/MacOS withdrawal. But thanks to some nifty plug-ins for jEdit, and some very helpful tutorials, I'm finding a workable interim 'fix' on Windows and Ubuntu.
In fact, there are some nice features like pop-up code-completion with context sensitive rdoc (including Rails docs) that I'd like to see in TextMate.
If you're on Windows or *nix - or you don't have the moolah for TM - then it might be worth a look.
- Rob McKinnon's jEdit Ruby Plugin (features)
- Sune Simonsen's Superabbrevs
- Jesse Crouch's Superabbrevs Tutorial
- JScott Becker's Superabbrev snippets for RoR
- Eadz's Ruby on Rails for jEdit

I'm having a few problems getting some things to work. Please let me know if you know how to:
- run script/console or irb inside the Console. It just sits and spins when I run anything that takes input.
- hook up to Subversion.
- get tabbed views for file buffers instead of the buffer dropdown.
[I got this working with the BufferTabs plug-in]
- get class and method folding to work.
[This just required setting Utilities > Global Options > Editing > Folding Mode to Sidekick]
