RubyMine 7.1.3 Help

Rbenv Support

RubyMine supports rbenv versions up to the latest.

rbenv is intended for *NIX and OS X.

In this section:


  • rbenv is installed on your computer.
  • Ruby interpreters are installed.
  • RubyMine supports rbenv Ruby interpreters installed in the default rbenv folder ~/.rbenv only.
  • rbenv is incompatible with rvm! Any references to rvm should be removed before using rbenv.


At startup, RubyMine scans your ~/.rbenv folder , and automatically configures SDK's for each Ruby interpreter . The detected interpreters are shown in the Ruby SDK and Gems page of the Settings dialog.

RubyMine also detects newly installed rbenv interpreters "on-the-fly". On reopening the Settings dialog, you will find updates in the Ruby SDK and Gems page.

Important note for configuring remote interpreters

If you are configuring a remote interpreter using rbenv version manager, you have to specify ruby executable located under the directory versions, rather than shims.
