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 .
To create a new project from existing source code
- On the main menu, choose File | Open Directory .
- 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 .
- Click OK.
- 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.
