Ruby on Rails


Rinari stands for Rinari Is Not A Rails IDE. It is an Emacs minor mode for Rails that is actively maintained. For best results install it from the git repo.

Also, it allows for the running of a console session with full Rails application loaded for interactive use, SQL console, starting of the web server (rails server).
