RubyMine 2018.2, the second major update for RubyMine this year, is now available for your review! Check out the new features below and give it a try. Don't forget to share your feedback!
The upgraded Ruby type inference makes the IDE significantly better at understanding types of elements in blocks, arrays, and hashes, which greatly improves the code autocompletion and navigation on the whole.
RubyMine now correctly recognizes and navigates (Ctrl/Cmd + Click) to definitions and usages of models that use polymorphic associations.
Autocompletion for abstract model names also becomes available if a polymorphic association is defined in the project.
The new release features chruby and asdf support. It makes all the version managers (RVM, rbenv, asdf, and chruby) available in WSL, Docker, as well as in SSH and other remote connections.
You will also discover that rbenv-vars and other plugins work correctly in the new version.
Now after you’ve run all tests in a file or directory, RubyMine provides an option to rerun the failed tests only, instead of rerunning all the tests. This frees you from manually picking up and investigating every failed test.
The new feature also works with presets like
rake test and
RubyMine now allows you to reformat YAML code. Select Code | Reformat Code, or press ⌥⌘L / Ctrl+Alt+L.
You can also choose how to fold and indent sequences, align values, and apply other code style options in Preferences / Settings | Editor | Code Style | YAML.
You can now autocomplete and find usages of aliases when an anchor is defined, as well as navigate to the anchor and back.
Inline renaming for aliases and anchors is also available now. The IDE will warn you if you try to provide a name that conflicts with another existing anchor. It will not let you rename anchors using characters that aren’t allowed by the standard.
A number of basic YAML code inspections were added as well.
With this release you can autocomplete YAML data structures that have a JSON Schema file. The IDE automatically traces schemas from schemastore, but also provides a way to manually add and configure JSON schema files in the settings.
Finally, you can now quickly copy & paste a key path to a value in
files instead of typing out the full path.
Starting with this release you can attach the debugger to remotely running processes. Set up an SSH connection (Preferences/Settings | Ruby SDK and Gems | New Remote | SSH Credentials), and troubleshoot the app without restarting or any additional configurations.
Also, the IDE now supports all new features from TypeScript 2.9 and the upcoming TypeScript 3.0 releases.
You can now refactor React components with Refactor | Extract Component, and convert React class components into functional components and back.
In addition, code completion is now available for events and event modifiers in Vue templates.
Now it’s easier to find files with merge conflicts as the IDE groups such files under a new Merge Conflicts node. Click the Resolve action link to open the Files Merged with Conflicts dialog.
There's a handy new Browse Repository at Revision action for exploring the state of the repository based on any given revision. Open the context menu in the Log or from the file history to access the required repository state in the Project Tool Window.
It is now possible to skip the Push dialog while using the Commit and Push action, or only show it when pushing to protected branches. Customize this behavior in Preferences / Settings | Version Control | Git.
You can configure as many GitHub accounts as you need (Preferences | Version Control | GitHub), and set the default GitHub account for each of your projects.
Run, build, and debug your app, commit changes, and update the project right from the Touch Bar.
All Touch Bar contexts can be customized in Preferences / Settings | Appearance & Behavior | Menus and Toolbars.
Make RubyMine title bars darker on macOS. Go to Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance and select Use dark window headers.
RubyMine 2018.2 also features a number of brand new icons, designed to provide a clearer and more consistent look & feel.
Parsing routines are now unified for arguments in method definitions and block calls. This improved Code Insight for block variables: for instance, a block passed as a parameter is now properly resolved from the receiver block’s body.
RubyMine 2018.1 introduces a new Run anything action (double-press Ctrl) — a unified and instant way to run any command in RubyMine, such as rake tasks, rails server, generators, configurations, or even terminal commands. Not only will the new action run a command or script, but it will also save and suggest it later in the Recent commands or Temporary Configurations dropdown.
Moreover, you can fire up the debugger from within the same action. Just press Ctrl twice to call Run anything, and then hold Shift to run a debug configuration.
The newly added postfix code completion lets you transform an existing expression without the need to move your caret about in the code to reverse, alter, or supplement a statement.
As you’d expect, you can locate the whole list of postfix templates with examples in the settings (Preferences / Settings | Editor | General | Postfix Completion), and turn off the ones you don’t use.
Markdown preview now renders inline diagrams! Insert
snippet used by the IDE) before your diagram code in an
.md file and RubyMine
properly identify the syntax and display the diagram in the preview pane.
RubyMine’s debugger now provides a more user-friendly way to set up exception breakpoints that will suspend execution when a certain type of exception is raised. Find and enable this option in Run | View Breakpoints.ыегаа
If you don’t want the debugger to stop at every exception raised, hit a plus button and choose which types of exceptions should be triggered.
The new version supports the latest TypeScript features, improves the Implement Members
adds a new Surround with type guard quick-fix for unresolved properties. The IDE also
TypeScript configuration file names other than
Create a new Vue component from an existing one, without copy and paste – select the part of the template and use Refactor | Extract or press Alt-Enter and select Extract Vue Component.
The IDE will create a new single-file component, add an import for it, and pass all the data and methods to it with props.
Cmd/Ctrl-click on the class name in HTML now suggests navigating not only to its declaration in the compiled CSS file linked in this HTML file, but also to the Sass, SCSS, or Less source.
In HTML, code completion suggests classes and ids from all of the style sheets if there are no matching symbols in the linked CSS file.
The new release features the highly-desired partial git commits. This new option allows you to include code chunks into a commit using the check-boxes in the Diff pane of the Commit Changes dialog.
Moreover, you can associate the code chunks with a changelist, and track them separately.
We've also added three new actions to make it easier to use the rebasing procedure from the IDE: Abort Rebase, Continue Rebase, and Skip Commit. Call the new actions from the handy Git Branches pop-up.
This release has significant performance improvements that the team have been working on the whole year. To put it in a nutshell, the IDE has become faster, which is especially easy to see when RubyMine works at full blast. Go to Code | Inspect Code to run it for your whole project and see for yourself.
Navigate to Declaration, one of RubyMine's most beloved and used features, has become even better! We've eliminated bottlenecks that might have prevented you from jumping to external keywords like callbacks and responders. Update now to see the rest of the resolution improvements no other editor can offer.
Code Insight features have been significantly reworked. In particular, RubyMine has become much better at mapping declared method arguments with the given ones.
Not only that, but some built-in Inspections and Intentions have been fixed, making the IDE even more robust.
Run v2017.3 and inspect any particular errors, and fix them in bulk across the whole project.
Another highlight of the new RubyMine improvements is that now there is better support for applications with nested projects, like Rails Event Store. For these types of applications, the IDE detects the projects located within the app and their own Gemfiles and allows you to install and resolve the required dependencies.
Please note, your feedback is indispensable for us to further improve the applications with complex architecture.
RubyMine 2017.3 features Windows Bash Support! We encourage our Windows users to try out WSL in RubyMine to get rid of any painful configs on Windows, and exploit the full power of the IDE.
Follow this tutorial to install WSL, and then add it as a remote SDK in RubyMine (Preferences / Settings | Languages & Frameworks | Ruby SDK and Gems | New remote).
Extracting methods with RubyMine is a piece of cake, but now it's even sweeter. With this
you can extract methods (Refactor | Extract) to a
public section if you want.
Starting from now, RubyMine's RuboCop in-editor autocorrections outperform any other alternative. With a simple Alt+Enter you can autocorrect the whole file or fix a specific cop department or an offense class.
Together with RubyMine's respect for your
this makes the IDE your personal code style censor.
You asked us to add an ability to indent
methods, and now you got it! Find these options in Editor | Code style |
reformat your methods' indentation the way you want (Code | Reformat code).
In addition, you can now choose which operators should be wrapped with space, and which kept as is. The formatter will follow your choice.
Parameter name hints have become much cannier: you can now configure them to be displayed for literals only, as well as turn them off for excessive cases, e.g. when the given arguments are self-explanatory.
Moreover, the new Show implicit param grouping option will wrap all the optional values into the improvised array for better visibility.
Find the new settings in Preferences / Settings | Editor | General | Appearance.
DevOps is the future and Puppet doesn't rest on its laurels – nor does RubyMine! The new release brings support for the EPP template syntax.
Not only does the IDE now recognize the original EPP syntax, but it also correctly autocompletes and navigates from templates to manifests and back.
On top of that, Rename Refactoring works for variables and parameters, and you can Find Usages of your template files in seconds.
The new Trace to_s evaluation option detects costly operations and throws a timeout message, saving you time during the debugging session.
Find it in Preferences / Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Debugger and check it out for yourself.
This release introduces a new way to test APIs from the IDE. Now you can write HTTP
requests in a
.http file and then quickly run them
with the icons on the editor gutter.
The Vue.js support features, completion and navigation to the definition, now work for Vue props, properties in the data object, computed properties, and methods. You will also find a collection of code snippets for Vue!
Code completion for CSS properties and values has become more precise, with the previously missing completion suggestions added for values with transform, transition, and pointer-events properties.
The Log viewer now offers an Interactively Rebase from Here action, which can help you pick, edit, skip, squash, reword, and fixup commits through a convenient UI dialog.
Now when you switch between branches, the IDE preserves your workspace: the opened files, the current run configuration, and the breakpoints.
Finally, RubyMine now shows the files which were changed by merge commits, even if they differ from one parent. Not only that, but the IDE also displays a 3-panel Diff for the merge conflicts.
The Schemas node in the database tree has been replaced with a hover option, which shows the number of schemas currently displayed in the tree. Click on it to add or hide schemas.
You can now use the SQL generator to generate DDL scripts with options. Go to Context xmenu | SQL Scripts | SQL Generator and get the generated DDL of any type of object (table, schema, procedure) or even several objects simultaneously.
Also, we’ve added the following SSH improvements:
Finally, the long-awaited ability to group data sources is available in this release.
