Ready for Rails 4
We share the community’s excitement about the upcoming Rails 4 final release. We’ve made sure that RubyMine supports the newest framework features.
New Development Horizons
TextMate Bundles Support
TextMate bundles have already become a well-known tool for sharing preferred highlighting schemes for most of the programming languages and file types in use nowadays. Now the IDE lets you import your favorite bundles and thus expands the space of languages you may use with syntax highlighting support.
Cutting-edge Ruby ...
Developing on a cutting edge of a technology is full of excitement, pleasure and risk. RubyMine helps to increase the pleasure and eliminate risks with Ruby 2.0 syntax and debugging support.
New minitest (>=3.1.0) and rspec-rails (>= 2.12.0) are supported as well.
and JRuby Development
Torquebox and Trinindad Support
For being more productive Nailgun was supported. It allows running JRuby commands without incurring the JVM startup overhead and saves your time.
More Control on Your Apps
Remote Ruby Interpreters
Managing the development environment on virtual machines and remote hosts sometimes takes a lot of time and effort. This is why we've worked hard to let you add and set up a remote SDK. Then you can run, test and debug your remote app.
Developing your own gems is an essential part of Ruby development as well as using third-party ones. Now you can create gem application as simple as any Ruby app and manage all gems and their dependencies with a help of gems dependency diagram.
Many of Ruby developers prefer Puppet to manage their servers. If you are among others you have a lot of configuration *.pp files and you might be glad to know RubyMine now provides syntax highlighting and code completion for them.
REST Client is now integrated in the IDE to let you test RESTful web services right from RubyMine. Simply invoke different requests over HTTP (e.g. GET, POST, PUT and others) to RESTful APIs with various parameters and get response and response headers. More details »
