Look-up in external libraries

From RubyMine, you can also view documentation for symbols defined in external JavaScript libraries and frameworks. Upon pressing Shift+F1 with the cursor positioned at the symbol, RubyMine invokes the corresponding link and opens the documentation page in the default RubyMine browser.

To enable the external JavaScript library lookup functionality

  1. Download the required libraries or frameworks.

  2. Configure the downloads as libraries at the RubyMine level.

  3. Specify links to external documentation.
