With textmate you can launch the GUI of textmate using the mate command. With sublime text there's the subl command.

I use Sublime Text for Ruby myself, and haven't had any issues. It shouldn't make a difference.

I have never used Text Mate, but I have used Sublime 2 and am now using Sublime 3 (http://www.sublimetext.com/3) with Ruby and it works fantastic.

I am on a Macintosh. and I mean in the terminal? David Grimm Nathan Fulkerson John Steer-Fowler
