Dr. Knuth's original WEB system was for Pascal, but he and Silvio Levy converted it to C, producing CWEB, which you can read about in the cwebman manual described above. Norman Ramsey developed the SPIDER system to allow the WEB concept to be ported theoretically to any combination of a programming language and formatting/display language. See http://www.literateprogramming.com/spider.pdf. So one could write a new version for Ruby or another language.
Regarding editor support: Vim, for one, supports syntax highlighting for CWEB.
