Working with Diagrams
RubyMine lets you utilize UML diagrams to analyze Ruby classes, Rails models, gem dependencies, and so on. Depending on the project type and current context (for example, a file/folder selected in a project view or a caret position in the editor), you can use the following diagram types:
Ruby Class Diagram
Rails Model Dependency Diagram
Gem Dependency Diagram
