IDE no.. though some might argue EMACS
Truly the REBOL interactive shell is your best friend.
Also for deeper understanding people usually recommend %anamonitor.r
I am not sure if that is the best link for it.
To visually examine nested objects/blocks.
Maxim had embedded anamonitor in his super Rebol/View framework called 'Glass'.
An easy shortcut opens the monitor with the current window directly in the
monitor, ready to debug and probe your work environment.
unfortunately the Glass project is in limbo
at the moment :-(
I use UltraEdit32 on Windows. Its a terrific programmers' editor. With colored
syntax highlighting for REBOL and almost all languages. It has built in FTP
which makes it a cinch to edit on a remote server. Once a set of remote scripts
are open, you just make changes and hit save. Likewise working between local and
remote is simple cut'n'paste
Before that I used NoteTabPro which is also wonderful. Extremely fast with many
unique clever features.
