    Did you try Komodo 4 editor?

    It is free the editor edition and has support for rails/ruby with autocompletation and debugger.

    Looks interesting. I'll have to play with it a bit more to see if it can dethrone jEdit as my editor of choice.

    Heh, is it just me or does the extension manager look incredibly familiar? I wonder if ActiveState have any ties to the Mozilla team, or maybe they both make use of the same 3rd party extension manager.

    I tried the beta version but didnt get on with the code comletion. It is built on the Mozilla framework which is why it can integrate with Mozilla extensions.

    I do use the lite version which is ok but I still code mostly in php so use phpEd.

    Yeah, I don't actually use it myself, but I have been keeping an eye on it just in case it turns out to be really good.

    I am one of those in the small minority which uses jedit for all my editing. Its slow and lacks some features but it works well with every language and on every platform.

    Tell me about it. I used jEdit for almost 2 years before I got so fed up with its sluggishness and crappy UI.

    Between e and TextMate, the only time I open jEdit now is to remove Word formatting from HTML documents (e does a terrible job of it and I have a jEdit macro that does it all in one click) and for JSP syntax highlighting (e treats JSP files as XML ). I'd probably still use jedit more if I used Linux for more than command-line stuff and browser testing.

    Komodo Editor is a great code editor.
    For rails it has a code intelligence and you can create a package of scripts to run with parameters so you can instantiate a server, generate a migration/controller/whatever and such.

    I recommend to use it if you don't have money for IDEA.

    Why would one choose one of these editors over emacs (or vim)? I'm using emacs now, but I'm willing to try these editors.

    Because I didn't grow up using them and trying to learn them now will decrease my life span .

    Seriously, emacs and vim can do anything and everything but they are hard to learn to use effectively.
