Has anyone here used it and know of potential problems? The first potential problem I can think of is potential compatibility with the style checker, for example. Other problems I could see are issues with configuration that can be overcome with a standard file in the repo for JetBrains (don’t know if that’s there or not I’m just thinking out loud). Other could be that it just sucks, but I can figure that last one out out on my own.
This is apparently moot. I can’t get a download to start for either the Aptana Studio or the plugin bundle. I guess I could just install all the plugins manually through the Eclipse Store but at that point I’d rather deal with potentially paying $100 for the JetBrains product than subject myself to that.
I didn’t answer yet, because you asked about Aptana and I don’t use it. Most active contributors use RubyMine or vim I think. For long-term contributors we can get a free license for RubyMine for you, see FAQ for developers in the wiki and for your first few contributions the 30 days trial should work.
It’s all good @supertux88 . I appreciate the offer on the free license if I were to become a regular contributor but I was under the impression there were a limited numbers of those. I’d be more than happy with covering the cost of my license on my own to keep the pool of available licenses available for others, but I very much appreciate you bringing that up as an option.
