Ruby support for Intellij forks

I think it would be nice to get a little bit of Ruby support in other non Intellij/RubyMine IDEs because writing chef recipes is a little bit hard without proper ruby support right now. Having said that, for people with an all products license, maybe the plugin manager could detect that I have a license for all IDEs and allow me to install ruby and python plugins in whatever IDE I want. I want python for our selenium tests in WebStorm and ruby for our chef recipes.

Nothing of this kind can be expected in near future due to numerous technical issues, as this would require re-thinking of plugins managements system and the platform as a whole. If you need all-in-one environment, use Idea. If all you need a basic syntax highlighting for Ruby in, say, WebStorm, try custom file types or textmate bundles
