IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 Help

Creating Rake Tasks

This feature is only supported in the Ultimate edition.

The following is only valid when Ruby Plugin is installed and enabled!

After IntelliJ IDEA restart, or after reloading Rake tasks, the *.rake files become available in the Run Rake Task pop-up.

To create a Rake task

  1. Right-click the target directory lib/tasks where you want the new Rake script to be added, and choose New |File on the context menu.
  2. In the New File dialog box, specify the Rake task name, followed by the .rake extension, and click OK.
  3. In the editor, create the desired contents, using the powerful IntelliJ IDEA coding assistance:
    ruby rakeTasksCode

    After IntelliJ IDEA restart, or after reloading Rake tasks, the new *.rake files will be included in the list of available Rake tasks.
