Lets look at what it takes to do some of the things that an IDE normally does for you, and consider how some tools that work great outside of an IDE can help to make us less dependent on the large memory consuming software that we use to develop with. Remember how a lot of us learned how to code using a simple text editor and some command line tools? Well, those command line tools are still there and available for you to use in your scripts. A tool like guard can help to compile and test our code and growl will keep us notified of the current status of our build. There are lots of tricks that can be used for all languages from ruby on a Linux box to C# on Windows. There is a simple life outside of the IDE!
