- Improvements for Liquid
- Clearer code completion for overridden methods
- A new ‘Inline local variable’ intention action
- New presentation of the search results in Search Everywhere
- Accessibility improvements
Improvements for Liquid
We continue working on the basic support for the Liquid template language. This build includes a number of bug fixes and a couple of new features.
We’ve added support for methods that contain question marks in their names:
RubyMine now also correctly recognizes named parameters in Liquid:
Clearer code completion for overridden methods
Starting with this build, code completion will show full type names for methods that override other methods from parent classes or modules. This will make it easier to understand where a suggested method is coming from.
RubyMine now only shows methods from parent classes in bold font.
A new ‘Inline local variable’ intention action
We’ve added a new intention action to inline local variables. It’s useful during refactoring in cases where you find yourself left with a variable that is only used once.
New presentation of the search results in Search Everywhere
We now display search results in the All tab of the Search Everywhere dialog as a single list, with items sorted by their relevance to the search query.
This is an experimental feature and we would like to hear your feedback!
To switch back to the old way of viewing search results, call the Find Action dialog and start typing “experimental”, open the Experimental features dialog and uncheck the feature called
RubyMine will now detect if the user is using a screen-reader and automatically enable our accessibility features for such users.
