Execute selected code in console

Posted on by Eugene Toporov

IRB console in RubyMine is a quick way to execute Ruby code.

Here is a quick hint on how you can quickly execute some code from the editor.

  1. Tools | Start the IRB console
  2. Select a code
  3. Tools | Load selected text/file in IRB console (⌥⇧L/Alt+Shift+L)

As you may have guessed from the menu item title, you can execute the whole file, without selecting any code. Try it!
