Code insight

  • The upgraded Ruby type inference helps RubyMine understand the types of elements in blocks, arrays, and hashes better, which greatly improves the code autocompletion and navigation on the whole. More.
  • RubyMine now provides code insight (autocompletion, navigation) for models that use polymorphic associations. More.

Version managers

  • The new version features chruby and asdf support and makes all the version managers (RVM, rbenv, asdf, and chruby) available in WSL, Docker, as well as in SSH and other remote connections. More


  • RubyMine provides a new option to rerun only failed tests instead of rerunning all the tests which will save you a lot of time. The new feature also works with commands like rake test and rake spec. More.


  • The IDE now lets you reformat YAML code. You can also choose how to fold and indent sequences, align values, and apply other code style options in the settings. More.
  • You can now autocomplete, navigate, find usages, and quickly rename anchors and aliases. More.
  • The new version provides autocompletion for YAML data structures that have a JSON Schema file. More.
  • There’s a new ability to quickly copy & paste a key path to a value in .yml files instead of typing out the full path. More.



  • Added Implement interface, Create derived class, Iterate with ‘for..of’, and other new intentions for JavaScript and TypeScript.
  • All the new features in TypeScript 2.9 and TypeScript 3.0 are now supported.
  • You can now refactor React components and convert React class components into functional components and back again.

  • A handy new Browse Repository at Revision action is available for exploring the state of the repository based on any given revision.
  • It is now possible to skip the Push dialog while using the Commit and Push action, or only show it when pushing to protected branches.
