IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 Help

Ruby Gems Support

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.

In this section:


Many types of the Ruby projects make use of the Ruby gems.

The approach of IntelliJ IDEA to the gems depends on the presence of the bundler.

  • If a project uses the bundler, then all the required gems are taken according to the Gemfile.
  • If there is no bundler, IntelliJ IDEA scans all the project files for the calls to Ruby gems, and produces a set of the required gems.

    If for some reason you are not happy with the set of gems defined by IntelliJ IDEA, you can create a Gemfile yourself and specify the gems of your choice.
