RubyMine 2017.1 Help

Importing Project from Existing Source Code

You can create RubyMine Rails applications around the source code generated in the console, or created in the other IDEs. RubyMine analyzes the code base, detects the Rails version in use, attaches the required gems, adds the .idea directory with settings, and marks the project with the special icon /help/img/idea/2017.1/project_icon.png.

Creating projects from existing source code

To create a new project from existing source code

  1. On the main menu, choose File | Open.
  2. In the dialog that opens, select the directory that contains the desired source code. Note that applications created externally are marked with the regular directory icon /help/img/idea/2017.1/folder.png.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Specify whether you want the new project to be opened in a separate window or close the current project and reuse the existing one. Refer to the section Opening Multiple Projects for details.
