It would be nice to see a fastly growing RubyOnRails IDE: RadRails in the
portage tree :-).
Not that i'm against making an ebuild for this, but have you tried RDT for eclipse?
Radrails is based on it, after all
RadRails is not based on RDT. Rather, it _integrates_ it... there's a difference. I don't think RDT would be suited for Rails development. It is aimed primarily at Ruby development since it is, after all, a Ruby IDE (not a Rails IDE).
Anyway... I don't think there's a RDT ebuild in portage either.
My point with that was that eclipse IS in the portage tree, and going from there to getting RDT working is a snap, with the eclipse update manager.
Getting any other eclipse plugin working might be a different matter, but RDT went flawless here. (/me makes a mental note to stop trying to install C++ dev tool for eclipse)
I'll look into creating an ebuild for it. It was fairly easy to install though. i just
tar -zxvf radrails*.tar.gz /opt
echo "/opt/radrails/radrails" > /usr/bin/radrails
chmod 755 /usr/bin/radrails
I couldn't get a symlink to work in there for some unknown reason, *shrug*
I'll look at putting together an ebuild for it.
That would be great. I would have tried to write an ebuild myself sooner or later but at the moment I really don't have the time.

I just created one, see bug: 127847

radrails startup file
Maybe java herd has interested in this
Well, -bin ebuilds are against our java packaging policy...

Ok, so i think the bug could be closed.
Not possible to make a source-based ebuild?

The source code is available only by CVS.
I can try to make a CVS ebuild.
Do you think can be useful?
A -bin ebuild is going to be ridiculous and highly un-gentoo, so essentially the best thing to do would be to make the CVS ebuild. I'm not on a gentoo right now so I don't have my kit setup to write an ebuild ( not even the vim template :( ), but I'll be happy to test one when i've put together a gentoo on the new baselayout.
Call it necromancy of a very old bug, but I was contacted earlier today by someone asking me to write an ebuild for this.
However, when I went to the radrails site to check out source, I noticed that it's now updateable through the eclipse update manager:
Add RDT and RadRails to the update manager and select both, then proceed and install.
* RDT: http://updatesite.rubypeople.org/release
* RadRails: http://radrails.sourceforge.net/update
* Subclipse (optional): http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.0.x
If there's still demand I could work on a cvs ebuild but otherwise, it's already installable if you have eclipse.
No response so far so I assume people are happy with eclipse update manager. Please reopen if you think otherwise.
