IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 Help

PIK Support

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.


  • pik is installed on your computer.
  • Ruby interpreters are installed.
  • IntelliJ IDEA supports pik Ruby interpreters installed in the default pik folder ~/.pik only.


pik is intended for Windows!

IntelliJ IDEA supports pik versions up to 0.3.0pre and 0.2.8.

At startup, IntelliJ IDEA scans your ~/.pik folder , and automatically configures SDK's for each Ruby interpreter . The detected interpreters are shown in the Modules page of the Project Structure Dialog dialog .

IntelliJ IDEA also detects newly installed pik interpreters "on-the-fly". On reopening the Project Structure dialog, you will find updates in the Gems tab of the Modules page. .

All the gems, installed apart from the default gems (that come with Ruby SDK, installed via pik) are visible.
