IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2 Help

Creating Ruby Class

Introduction

As mentioned in the section Populating Projects, IntelliJ IDEA allows you to generate Ruby classes. So doing, it's possible to create classes nested in the right modules.

Generating a Ruby class

This how it's done.

  1. Press Alt+Insert.
  2. From the pop-up menu, choose Ruby Class.
  3. In the New Ruby Class dialog box, enter the Ruby class name:

    Note that IntelliJ IDEA allows you to create classes prepended by modules. If required, prepend the class name with module name:

    /help/img/idea/2017.2/rm_new_class_with_module.png

IntelliJ IDEA creates a new Ruby class and opens it for editing. If a module name has been specified, it is displayed in the editor:
