IronRuby is an implementation of Ruby on the .NET platform
It isn't integrated in visual studio yet but you can use visual studio to
debug ironruby code.
There is no intellisense for ironruby and you will struggle to find any IDE
that has some kind of properly working autocomplete like intellisense for
the ruby language. You can use the console and ask the type for its methods
if you want to use intellisense primarily for discovery.

For ruby objects

get all methods

get instance methods

get class (static) methods
System::String.methods - System::String.instance_methods

To get started extract the downloaded zip file to a folder on your drive and
add that folder\bin to your PATH environment variable
for example C:\ironruby\bin if you extracted to C:\ironruby
