IntelliJ IDEA 2017.3 Help

PIK Support

This feature is only supported in the Ultimate edition.

The following is only valid when Ruby Plugin is installed and enabled!


  • 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.
