It is the minor mode for editing Ruby On Rails code with Emacs. This minor mode makes your work much easier and user friendly.

== Requirements

The emacs-rails-reloaded is requiring a 22.x or 23 (CVS) version of Emacs, and can’t be running on old versions (less 22.0). To install Emacs:

  • For UNIX: use your package manager (typically name of package emacs, emacs-cvs or emacs22) or compile it from source.

  • For OSX: use the "Aquameacs": or nightly builds of "CVS version with Cocoa": or install using macports (name of package: emacs or emacs-app)

  • For Windows: download and install "EmacsW32":

== Instalation

Download last release from "github project page": and unpack it to directory containing libraries of Emacs, by default it’s $HOME/.emacs.d/

After that add bellow code in your the .emacs file:

(setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/rails-reloaded") load-path)) (require 'rails-autoload)

Next bytecompile, press [M-x] and type rails/bytecompile.

== First Acquaintance

Go to directory with your rails application and open any file in Emacs:

cd $HOME/project/simplerailsapplication emacs app/controllers/application.rb
