FaqRubyJIRBInNetBeans61

How can I run colored IRB with code-completion in NetBeans 6.1+?

In NetBeans 6.1, after we switched to platform-per-project design, we had to disable colored, with code-completion, JRuby console. But it seems that under Windows the console still works. You might force the usage of JRuby console by passing option:

-J-Dirb.jruby=true

to the NetBeans or by adding it to the netbeans_default_options entry in the etc/netbeans.conf file.

Note: As for all such options, the flag is rather experimental, might not work correctly and might be removed in the future, likely when NetBeans comes with full terminal emulation support.


Applies to: NetBeans 6.1+
