How to Run Ruby/Rails Commands from the IDE instead of the Terminal
In the Ruby/Rails community, using a terminal is the most popular way to perform various commands and tasks. These tasks include running scripts, tests, Rails generators, Git and Docker commands, and many other things.

Running Rails tasks with Run Anything
Hi there! As you may already know, RubyMine provides a unified way to run Ruby scripts, Rails applications, Rake tasks, Rails generators, and so on with the powerful Run Anything (double Ctrl).
