Redcar is a cross-platform GUI text editor. Why another editor? Because Redcar is written entirely in Ruby and you can install it as a gem now.
Redcar takes advantage of Ruby's dynamism. Users can extend the editor with new commands while it is running, which we will do during this talk. We'll also look at how Redcar defines plugin APIs for working with text and creating tree views.
Java has Eclipse and Netbeans. Python has IDLE and Wing. Perl has Padre, but where are the Ruby editors? It's time for an editor in Ruby for Rubyists.
