I have a complete system I can do the work on and I am wondering what IDE would be recommended and any other advice people have.

I don't use an IDE for messing about with RT - I don't know of one that can handle Mason, so there's not much point.

I do most of my editing of mason components using Vim, because its syntax highlighting for Mason seems pretty good.

Very occasionally I run the standalone web server form of RT in a perldb session inside emacs, but that only really works for debugging the perl modules, not the mason components.
