Kate/KDevelop Sprint: More Progress with New Ruby Language Support

Posted by Alexander Dymo on October 29, 2012

More news about the new KDevelop Ruby language support plugin.

This week saw many improvements on parsing and semantic analyzing side. Just to name a few, parser is now able to recognize even the most strange heredocs, properly distinguish between classes and modules, support class methods, autorequire Rails code and more. Miquel who did all those amazing things can probably tell you more about that, so let's wait for his blog posts :)

Meanwhile KDevelop got two major new features - new file templates and unit testing support. So Ruby plugin now has new class template which you can already use, and a preliminary support for Test::Unit which you cannot yet use (it's not yet finished and committed).

Thanks to Joseph and KDE e.V. for sponsoring the sprint!
