A smart and easy to use integrated development environment for the Ruby language and Rails web framework
Most of the Ruby coders uses UNIX-system to code. Launching Ruby on Windows will cause a lot of issues. Many gems just will not work, most of the Ruby related app developers just don't bother to support Windows. There will be other issues with time format, interpreter and many other.
The most comfy way to code Ruby is on the macOS. But if you are not an Apple fan or you don't have a Mac, you can use Linux.
Once you're done with Ruby install, it is time to pick an IDE for coding.
Here is the instruction of RubyMine installation on Linux. This is one of the most powerful and convenient Ruby IDE.
A dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity, it has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write.
- Download the
RubyMine-*.tar.gzfile from the Download page.
- Unpack the
RubyMine-*.tar.gzfile to a different folder, if your current "Download" folder doesn't support file execution:
tar xfz RubyMine-*.tar.gz
Note that new instance should not be extracted over the existing one! The target folder must be empty.
The recommended install location according to the filesystem hierarchy standard (FHS) is
/opt. For example, it's possible to enter the following command:
sudo tar xf RubyMine-*.tar.gz -C /opt/
- Switch to the
rubymine.shfrom the bin subdirectory.
Also, JetBrains Toolbox allows to update your Linux RubyMine in a convenient way.
