We’ve added a basic Ruby gem manager functionality in the latest EAP build.
It allows you to browse local gems inside a selected Ruby SDK and choose the ones you need in the project including the dependent ones. For Rails projects, the latest found version of Rails is auto-added.
That’s almost all that we have now. But this is far from all we plan.
So, here is what’s coming soon:
- Browse remote gem repositories and install gems. rubyforge.org is the default, of course.
- Want a new Rails project but Ruby on Rails is not there? Hardly possible, but in case it happens, the needed gems will be downloaded and installed on the project creation.
- Want to debug your app, but debugger gems not installed? RubyMine will handle it automatically.
For dessert, here is the list of gems from http://gems.rubyonrails.org
Already tried the Rails 2.3.0 RC1, by the way?
Which of the new features you think RubyMine should have first? Let us know!
