Experience the Full Versatility of Ruby with RubyMine 5

Tatiana Vasilyeva

Hello everyone,

The weeks and days just before a major release are the definition of hectic: rapid heartbeat, fears, frustrations, hopes soaring high… But today we can finally sit down and catch our breath, because we did it! Please give a warm welcome to RubyMine 5!

As Ruby development is extremely diverse, with this release we aim to expand the boundaries and offer a full stack of development tools for more types of Ruby projects.

Read more about the release features, watch this catching demo from John Lindquist and finally download RubyMine 5!

RubyMine 5

Support of RubyMotion is surely the most prominent feature of the release. But hopefully, you will also enjoy these other features and enhancements:

  • CoffeeScript debugger
  • Ruby 2.0 syntax and debugging support
  • Import of TextMate bundles
  • Running and debugging support for TorqueBox and Trinidad platforms
  • Ruby gem applications
  • Integration of remote Ruby interpreters
  • Puppet support

Besides, RubyMine 5 adds a new dark look-and-feel for the UI; improvements in the IdeaVim plugin; new features for Sass and LESS languages; and more.

You can buy or renew your RubyMine license on our website. Note that RubyMine 5 is a free update for everyone who purchased their RubyMine license after Feb 6, 2012. And as usual, a 30-day trial is available if you want to try RubyMine as your new Ruby on Rails IDE.

And last but not least…
A million thanks to all early adopters for your invaluable feedback!

Develop with pleasure!
JetBrains RubyMine Team

    Installed. Looks good but scrolling performance are abysmal compared to RM 4

    • Tatiana Vasilyeva says:

      February 7, 2013

      Gam, what OS do you use? And what the size of a file? Need some data to reproduce.

      • Gam says:

        February 8, 2013

        MacOS X 10.7, Rails controller with about 1000 lines. Not smooth at all, even after all activity ended.
        Scrolls like butter under RM4.

          Gam, we couldn’t reproduce 🙁 Is it still an issue with RubyMine 5.0.1?

    Super excited, downloading and hope the version 4 keys will work on it 🙂

    • Dennis Ushakov says:

      February 7, 2013

      If your key was bought after 6th of February 2012 it should work 🙂

    Is this available to IntelliJ Ultimate edition 12 as a plugin?

    • Dennis Ushakov says:

      February 7, 2013

      Most of the features are already available in Ruby plugin, others will be present in updated version for 12.1

        When can we expect the remote SDK feature on IDEA?, i really need this =D!

  5. Vitaly says:

    February 7, 2013

    I push “Check for updates” button but nothing happens 🙁

    • Dennis Ushakov says:

      February 7, 2013

      What version are you on? You may just download it here as a workaround

      • Vitaly says:

        February 7, 2013

        I wouldn’t like to reinstall it. I am on 4.5.4

        • Dennis Ushakov says:

          February 7, 2013

          There may be issue in 4.5.x that results in update notification not showing. In any case patch update is not provided to new major version. Your settings will be imported into new installation automatically

    Rubymine 5 with it’s dark scheme is just perfect!!
    the only thing I cannot find, is there a way to enlarge this font ?

  7. Dmitry Polushkin says:

    February 7, 2013

    Please, get back an old icons from 4.5!

    And how to prevent from sliding tabs on mouse left/right?

  8. Victor Efimov says:

    February 7, 2013

    +1 for old icons!

  9. Felix says:

    February 8, 2013

    Agreed. The new folder icons in particular just get lost in the background!

  10. Brian Scott says:

    February 9, 2013

    Where is the Chef support! 🙂

    I must me missing something. I can use it fine if I create the project from the terminal, however creating the project from within Rubymine gives me console output saying that the app is being created, but the project directory is totally empty except for the .idea directory. Any thoughts?

    • Tatiana Vasilyeva says:

      February 15, 2013

      Is it still an issue in RubyMine 5.0.1?

      • Keith Lancaster says:

        February 17, 2013

        Yes, it is still apparently an issue. I am using rvm if that helps. The console output says that everything is being created, but the folder remains empty. Even weirder, I can’t seem to locate any of the supposedly generated files on disk using spotlight.

    Just REALLY annoying how file tree rolls up every time some file changes in background. Tried to use Redmine 4.5, now installed Redmine 5, and problem is still there.

    Still using other old IDE.

    • Anuki says:

      February 15, 2013

      Den, could you please clarify what kind of Project view you are using, whether you have a special scope? Also what type of project and on which platform do you open? Thank you.

  13. Marcel says:

    February 14, 2013

    +1 for old icons. The new ones are terrible.

  14. Jing says:

    The new dark theme is cool, but the left pane is horrible. It made the same mistake that Windows 8 made, everything is just too flat to indicate where to click, especially on Nokia Lumia by the way, I got lost right after that screen showed up. Icons have meanings only when all of us agree on it, just like our languages. Now my brain needs to work harder with additional process to understand where is where, what is what. After all, this awesome tool is a TOOL, sorry to be mean to the new “look and feel”, but how I can feel if I don’t even know where to look.

  15. Murat says:

    February 20, 2013

    I love the new version. Thank you for making such an wonderful tool. Great job!!!
    P.S. Please bring back the old icons, or so version of the them.
