Description Martin Krauskopf 2008-04-25 21:44:49 UTC
For tracking purposes so far. Will be needed for (j)irb, Rails Console, Debugger Console, might be more. Candidate for
Umbrella.

btw: such a term emulator would be useful for many other usages (e.g. python/django),  not just ruby
Comment 2 Martin Krauskopf 2008-09-16 11:50:03 UTC
Yes, we know. There are works in progress by Ivan Soleimanipour, cf.:

   http://wiki.netbeans.org/TerminalEmulator

This issue will likely depend on more general issue in "terminal emulator" component. Likely once the work by Ivan is
done, there will not leave to much work for Python/Scala/Ruby/<language_of_your_choice> modules implementors.

Works should restart once 6.5 is code-frozen and works on 7.0 starts again.

Just wanted to comment that currently this is partially accomplished using the JRuby console (http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqRubyJIRBInNetBeans61)-- however 
that doesn't work with Rails applications that are incompatible with JRuby (e.g. any that require native gems). So I hope the core of this feature (basic terminal 
emulation features like up-arrow history and output coloring) is accomplished without dependency on JRuby, even if some extra aspects (e.g. code 
completion) might be enabled by JRuby.

An experimental version of a terminal-based IOProvider is now available.
Check out the terminal module.
