RailsConf 2016: Are Ruby and Rails Still Trendy?

Hello everyone,

Looking back at the history of Ruby and Rails, we can’t help but highlight 2006 – the year IntelliJ IDEA Ruby Plugin was released and the first RailsConf took place in Chicago. Now, ten years later, we’re excited that the RailsConf 2016 is about to begin.

The RubyMine team has visited RailsConf each and every year since 2010, and always got back from it inspired and full of new ideas for RubyMine, all thanks to the incredible Ruby community!

Nowadays, some say that Ruby and Rails are on the decline and the community is not as active as it used to be. Is this really true? Let’s find the answer together!

Take Part in a Ruby Community Survey

We want to ask you, Ruby developers all over the world: Do you agree that Ruby and Rails are not trendy any more? Please follow this page with three simple questions to help us find the answer. By answering, you also get a chance to win one of the Amazon certificates worth 75$ as we’re going to compliment the most interesting answers.

Meet Us at RailsConf 2016

You’re most welcome to join us at the JetBrains booth to discuss the topic, ask any questions on RubyMine, have a demo, or have a chat over a cup of coffee during the break! We will also be wearing our JetBrains Team T-shirts so you can easily find us around the show.

We also invite you to see our own Tatiana Vasilyeva talk about RubyMine tips&tricks on Thursday, 10:50 – 11:30 AM, at 3501 G.


Sincerely yours,
The RubyMine Team

Interview with Marcin Grzywaczewski and Robert Pankowecki

Hello everyone,

Development is not only about your code, development is also about the bright people you meet along the way. Today, just before the upcoming webinar React.js from a Rails Developer’s Perspective, we want to share an interview with Marcin and Robert, known for their book on React for Rails developers. They kindly agreed to answer our questions, and we hope you will enjoy the discussion.

Hi Marcin, Robert, thank you for taking the time to speak with us. I believe all Rails developers interested in React.js already know you, but for those who don’t, can you tell us a bit about yourselves?

Marcin Grzywaczewski

Marcin Grzywaczewski

Marcin: Hello! I’m a co-author of two books about React.js and my goal is to ease the pain of backend developers  writing JavaScript. My primary interest right now is researching all potential educational opportunities Arkency can provide to our awesome community.


Robert Pankowecki

Robert Pankowecki

Robert: Yo! A few years ago I was disappointed by Rails speed in development mode so I wrote the active_reload library. It was later incorporated in Rails 3.2 so everyone benefits from it every day. I blog regularly about Ruby, Rails and React.js and some of those posts have thousands of readers every month :)

RubyMine 2016.1 Beta is Available

Hello everyone,

We’re entering the homestretch and getting ready for the next major RubyMine 2016.1 release with Beta build 145.256, which you can learn more about and download from our website.

You are probably wondering why we’re using 2016.1 version number instead of 8.5. With the recent move to the subscription model, we planned to release more often and move away from the major/minor versioning scheme, focusing on continuously delivering value independent of versioning. In addition, we want to align the versioning and releases timetables of all products that comprise JetBrains Toolbox. So these are the two reasons for the versioning change from 8.5 to 2016.1. To find out more about this, please check this post in our company blog.

At any rate, this build is focused on the bug fixes and improvements in the recently added features. The full list of issues addressed in this build is available in the release notes.

We are looking forward to getting your feedback in our issue tracker. If you have the previous EAP build (145.184) installed, you should soon get a notification in the IDE about a patch update. To get notifications of new EAP builds as they become available, subscribe to the EAP channel in Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | System Settings | Updates.


Sincerely yours,
The RubyMine Team

Live Webinar: React.js from a Rails Developer’s Perspective

Hello everyone,

With the new Rails API coming with Rails 5, it is now even more natural to use Rails as a backend and JavaScript as a frontend for your apps. And when it comes to JavaScript, React seems to be one of today’s most popular frameworks. So we’ve asked Marcin Grzywaczewski, one of the authors of Rails meets React.js book, to make an introduction to React for Rails developers.

Join us Thursday, March 24th, 15:00 – 16:00 GMT (11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT) for a free webinar, React.js from a Rails Developer’s Perspective: A Gentle Introduction, by Marcin Grzywaczewski.

We have been focusing on Rails 5 support since the first beta was released at the end of December. Today we want to share what has been done and welcome you to try Rails 5 with the latest RubyMine 8.5 EAP build 145.184.

Action Cable

Let’s start with the big new thing, a framework for handling WebSockets called Action Cable. Though the work on the feature is still in process, we have already added the main support, which we want to describe in more detail.
