Opening Files from Command Line

Opening a file in the editor

RubyMine helps opening a file for editing so that the caret rests at the specified line.

To open a file for editing

• In the command line, type the following:
<RubyMine> <path1> --line <number> <path2>
where:
• <RubyMine> is the platform-specific product launcher
• <path1> is the path to the project that contains the desired file
• <number> is the number of the line, where the caret should rest
• <path2> is the path to the file to be opened

Examples

Windows

RubyMine.exe C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter --line 3 C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter\src\javascript\numbers.js

OS X

/Applications/RubyMine.app/Contents/MacOS/rubymine ~/RubyMineProjects/untitled45 --line 1 ~/RubyMineProjects/untitled45/sample.sass
