I talkde a little bit with few people about which IDE to use for ruby.
It seems like several like to use SublimeText which is indeed a great IDE but can be hard to setup and use.
To me, JetBrains provides some of the top IDE in the market. I already use PyCharm et IntelliJ for personal use and I love it.
As a well-known ruby project community, I thought it could be a good idea to ask for a free license for RubyMine in order to make the developement easier for newcomer (like me).
What is your opinion ?
Since this issue and the question in the proposal has received divided opinions, I’d like to vote on the issue before doing anything.
To actually get these licenses out to our developers (who want them), I’d be happy to make a short simple status post from our DiasporaHQ account, and the official project social media accounts outside d* (FB, Twitter, G+).
The post would say:
* JetBrains sponsored RubyMine licenses available to developers who have successfully got two pull requests merged in.
* Requests for license - contact [email protected] … or if the core team disagrees on the contact email, I’ll be happy to have mine there then.
* Longer posts (not Twitter) would start with a “While we recommend FOSS editors” -section, maybe mentioning an editor or too (which are good?)
* YES - to support a post made
* NO/BLOCK - to be against
