Configure content roots

ItemTooltipDescription
Excluded rootExcluded

Mark a folder as an excluded root.

Excluded roots are not visible to RubyMine. Usually, one would like to exclude temporary build folders, generated output, logs, and other project output. Excluding the unnecessary paths is a good way to significantly improve performance.

This command is duplicated from the context menu of a content root.

root_Test.pngTest Sources

Mark a folder as a test root. Such folder displays in the list of test roots.

The files under the test roots are interpreted according to their type. RubyMine can parse, inspect and compile the contents of these roots.

This command is duplicated from the context menu of a content root.
