Creating Project Remotely


If you don't have a Ruby interpreter on your local development machine, you can create a project remotely. Using RubyMine, create a new project, setting it up for running and debugging on a remote machine.

Configuring remote interpreter

It is important to configure the default interpreter that will be used for any newly created project.

To configure a remote interpreter, follow these general steps:

  1. On the main menu, choose File | Default Settings, or on the Welcome screen, click the drop-down Configure and choose Settings.
  2. Open Settings/Preferences.
  3. In the Settings/Preferences dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S), click the Ruby SDK and Gems node.
  4. In the toolbar, click add, and choose New remote...:
    rm add remote ruby interpreter
  5. In the Configure Remote Ruby Interpreter dialog box, select the desired option (Deployment configuration, SSH Credentials etc.).

Creating a project with the remote interpreter

Note that RubyMine allows creating both pure Ruby and Rails projects.

To create a remote project, follow these general steps:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • On the Welcome screen, click the link Create New Project.
    • On the main menu, choose File | New Project.
  2. In the dialog box that opens, choose Ruby or Rails project type.
    py create project remote
  3. In the Interpreter field, select the desired remote interpreter from the drop-down list.

    Note that your remote interpreter is unable to sync a project outside of the mapped folders. If your project is located outside of the mapped folder, a red message is shown, until you specify the project location within the mapped folder.

  4. Specify the values under More Settings.
  5. Click Create.
