    Question Ruby without commandline?

    Hello

    I come from a PHP background. I have been using frameworks )(Zend, cakephp) since years.

    I am planning to learn Ruby. I want to make a small project in it but was wondering if its possible to make the project without using a command line. Every tutorial I read on the internet explains how to run your ruby code using command line. In Zend or cakephp, we have the option to either use the command line or download the framework library from their respective website and start using your favourite IDE and start coding.

    1) Is this also possible in Ruby?

    2) Can I download the framework library and start coding using Netbeans etc?

    3) Is there any (step-by-step) tutorial available for the same?


    Any help will be highly appreciated.


    Many thanks


    PS: FYI - I use Ubuntu 9.04 with apache 2.2

    Ruby/Rails development is fairly tied to a command line environment. Even if you can do it without a command line, it's going to be more hassle than it's worth. You should set up a local development environment by installing Apache, mySQL, and RoR - there are tutorials available for this. Is there a specific reason you can't use the command line?

    Also if you're a PHP developer looking at Ruby on Rails, you should take a look at lamplighter also.

    I have also very little knowledge of Ruby. Like many web frameworks, Ruby on Rails uses the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture pattern to organize application programming.
