We’ve always felt that being flexible is important in Ruby/Rails community and we did our best to be on the cutting edge and adjust according to actual needs of the users.
And again, with the announcement of Rails 3.1 we’ve corrected our plans and started working on RubyMine 3.2 with a timely support of the new technologies.
Today we’re opening the usual Early Access Preview for RubyMine 3.2 and hoping for your feedback. But let us describe the major changes inside RubyMine 3.2:
Ruby on Rails 3.1 support
- Sprockets support available
Syntax highlighting for .coffee files is implemented. We’re still working on the parser, so your problem reports are very welcome.
YARD Support: Read more in our previous postings. You can finally try it yourself.
External documentation: To open the documentation Web site for an element under the caret in your Web browser, press Shift-F1 (View | External Documentation). RubyMine knows the where to look for the needed docs.
New Code Inspections
We’ve added a number of new code inspections for your Ruby & Rails code:
- a set based on the suggestions from Rails Code Quality Checklist.
- Ruby naming conventions inspection
We think they are really good for maintaining your code in good shape.
Other Additions and Improvements
1. Move line is now available for ANY code.
2. Remote files synchronization from IDE over FTP/SFTP (Check under Tools -> Deployment…).
4. Some UI/UX improvements, e.g. a reworked Search&Replace UI and an option to hide/show tool-window buttons.
And of course there’s also a number of the fixes some of you were voting and waiting for…
Develop with pleasure!
