RubyMine enables working in the IRB console for both Ruby projects, and Rails applications. The console provides syntax highlighting, code completion, and commands history. Once started, IRB console opens in a separate tab in the Run tool window. Note that you can launch as many IRB consoles as required.
- RubyMine provides a dedicated run/debug configuration for consoles. When a console is launched, it is done via the corresponding temporary run/debug configuration. You can save such configuration as permanent for further use.
- For the techniques of working with the console, refer to the section Using Consoles.
- 5.0+Console can be launched on a remote SDK. Refer to the section Configuring Remote Ruby Interpreters.
