Synchronizing RubyMine Configuration using IDEA Server

RubyMine license allows using the IDE from different computers (non-simultaneously). And once you have more than one IDE installation, you are in need to configure them all. But most likely you’d want them all to be configured similarly. So, to simplify this task, we’ve made the so called ‘IDEA Server plugin’ compatible with RubyMine 2.x

The plugin allows to synchronize IDE settings between installations, so setting up a new workstation is the matter of several clicks with it.

To install the plugin, open IDE Settings | Plugins, select the ‘Available’ tab, find the ‘Idea Server Plugin’ in the list and install it. Then restart RubyMine and you will get the Settings Server login prompt on startup.

For more information about the plugin and how it works please refer to Synchronizing IntelliJ IDEA Settings using IDEA Server document in our knowledge base.

If you find some problems or have additional questions about this functionality — let us know.

Note: To use the plugin you need RubyMine 2.0.1 or later.
