Running Rake Tasks
This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.
The following is only valid when Ruby Plugin is installed and enabled!
Usecommand on the menu, and select the desired task from the list.
To run a Rake task
- On the main menu, choose .
- In the pop-up window, start typing the task name, or its part. IntelliJ IDEA shows the list of matching Rake tasks. If you want to see all the available tasks, including those without description, select the check box Include undocumented.
- Select the desired task from the suggestion list, and press Enter.
- In the Execute '<Rake task>' dialog box, specify the script arguments, if any, and select the desired environment from the drop-down list.
If necessary, enable the
--traceoption by selecting the Full backtrace check box. This option is the same as in the Rake run/debug configuration; as soon as this option is set in the run configuration dialog box, it is also set in the Run Rake Task dialog box, and vice versa.
This behavior is common for the majority of Rake tasks. However, the migration tasks behave differently. Instead of the list of arguments, one should specify the migration version. By default, IntelliJ IDEA suggests the latest migration version, while all the other migrations that exist in project, are available in the suggestion list.
For the following migration tasks
depending on the context where they are invoked, IntelliJ IDEA suggests by default the migration that is currently selected in the Project tool window, or open in the editor. So doing, the editor has the priority: if a certain migration is selected in the Project tool window, and another one is open in the editor, and the editor gets the focus, the default migration version will be the one in the editor .
- Click OK.
