I have been developing with Ruby on Rails and Emacs for a good three months now, but I haven’t been using the emacs editor to its full potential. Nothing illustrates that more than not using a Ruby on Rails minor mode like Rinari. I just enabled rinari-minor-mode today and watched the introduction Rinari Screencast, and I’m blown away at how much time I could be saving using come of the commands shown.
You could switch over to the controllers, models and views using the
c-c ; f
v command keys. What I was really looking for was to make the erb
<%= %> tags, and the rinari minor mode can do that as well with
c-c ' e.
more bindings can be seen with
c-h b. I just learnt about this command through the Rinari video. It is useful because you can see all the commands associated to different minor modes.
