JetBrains RubyMine

Like all IDEs based on the IntelliJ platform, RubyMine has a unique code analysis engine that underpins features such as intelligent code completion, refactoring, code correction on the fly, and code navigation. The peculiarity of RubyMine is that for all the functions listed above, the specifics of each specific project are taken into account.

For example, for a Rails application, renaming the model will rename the corresponding controller and view files, and create a migration file to make the necessary changes to the database. Navigation will allow you to quickly jump from the controller method to the view file and back again, or to the corresponding test scenarios. In the case of a RubyMotion application, code completion works not only for the Ruby language, but also for Objective-C code, not only in the editor, but also in the console.

In addition, RubyMine allows you to fully customize the working environment that meets the requirements of the developer, starting with the color scheme, the location of windows, keyboard shortcuts and ending with integration with the version control system, database, or setting up a remote server.
