What is your definition of 'portable'? Something that runs from the
same installation dir across different operating systems? Different
distributions of linux? Or just different machines running the same
OS/distribution?

The topic of ruby ides comes up periodically here, and usually
generates a long thread, so search the archives. The matrix above came
about from this previous incarnation of this topic, for instance:

I'm somewhat skeptical that you'll find something truly portable (to
different OSs)... editors tend to depend on a lot of system specific
stuff and require a big stack of gui libraries underneath. You should
be able to get, say, 2 different installations (mac and windows) of
the same editor going on your pen drive. You might also have luck with
something java-based, if you want to assume that whatever machine it's
used on has a JVM installed.
