Improved HAML auto-indenting in RubyMine 2.0.2

When you edit the code you should only think about the code, not the way it looks. And a good IDE, such as RubyMine, should do the rest, like auto-indenting and formatting the code as you type.

So, we are constantly improving our already-the-best Rails IDE. This time we’ve made some enhancements in HAML auto-indentation. For HAML’s indent-based markup this is especially important.

Below are some examples how it works now (‘before’ image on the left and ‘after’—on the right, with the caret shown).

  • In HAML tags:
  • In HAML comments:

Isn’t it nice? Let us know if you have some comments or ideas.

Check out RubyMine 2.0.2 RC2 as it brings lot’s of other stuff too.

Develop with pleasure!
