RubyMine 1.0 Released - New Ruby and Rails IDE

  • submit to reddit

JetBrains today uveiled RubyMine 1.0, the company's new integrated development environment (IDE) for Ruby and Rails development. RubyMine 1.0 includes advanced support for Ruby on Rails development — including Rails-aware code completion, inspections and refactorings, specialized project views and quick navigation. Additional features include

  • Version Control Systems integration — with unified UI and advanced features such as change lists and shelved changes for all supported systems. Integration with Subversion, Git, Perforce, and CVS is available out of the box.
  • Graphical Ruby and Rails Debugger — with breakpoints in Ruby code and even in Rails RHTML view files.
  • RSpec and Test::Unit testing frameworks support — with GUI-based test runner.
  • Open API for creating plugins in Ruby or Java — plus a number of already available IDE plugins.

"Despite the belief that most Ruby/Rails developers are happy writing code in simple text editors, we had RubyMine downloaded around 25,000 times since the Public Preview announcement. Early RubyMine adopters provided a great deal of feedback and worthy improvement suggestions," said Dmitry Jemerov, the RubyMine lead developer. "We are certain that, as with all of our highly-intelligent development tools, Ruby developers can be extremely productive by using RubyMine. In fact, version 1.0 is just the beginning — we have tons of ideas and plans for new releases."

A single-developer Commercial License is priced at $99 (US). The license includes free RubyMine updates for 1 year after the purchase date, covering major new releases as well.

looks very nice, and very competitively priced.

any chance someone can do a review and comparison against netbeans ruby support and 3rd rail? from embracadero?
