As a seasoned user of RubyMine (started in 2009) I’m sure that investment in JetBrains tools is worth my time. Extremely efficient navigation through the codebase, mindset of building toolset around keyboard shortcuts and powerful searching features. It feels like IDE understands my code providing a great assist and confidence with any kind of refactoring. RubyMine is definitely heavy duty, all around Rails ecosystem toolset — whenever you are doing backend or frontend part of Ruby on Rails apps, you have support for almost anything you need.

Having a lot of previous experience with Visual Studio/C#, I was a little wary when starting with Ruby. I was unfamiliar with the syntax and the tool chain. With RubyMine I was able to jump right into writing productive Ruby code. The tool helped setup all the tedious build requirements for projects. As I used the tool, the suggestions it offered help me learn more of the Ruby language, including the preferred idiomatic style. I feel I have learned a lot more about Ruby simply by using RubyMine
Simon Hodkinson, Senior Analyst Programmer at Sunsuper
I think it is one of the best IDEs I have ever used. I like it a lot already, but the more I explore, the more I like it! It’s so easy to use. I have spent no time to tweak it, or learn how to do things. It just works. I like it lots.

Using RubyMine allows me to develop using a common tool making it easier to pair and help each other out without having to lose productivity due to the context switching from one development environment (platform) to another.

RubyMine’s GUI for easily stepping through code in the debugger is great. The inline code analysis is nice for quickly catching typos and the code completion can be useful too. But for me, the best part about having RubyMine is the navigation and documentation. Being able to instantly bring up documentation is awesome! If I need more information, I hate wasting time trying to hunt down a method buried in code that I am not familiar with. With one key-stroke RubyMine takes me to the code I’m looking for.

I have been using RubyMine for a long time and can say it is an absolute dream to work in! I use it daily, integrated with various version control systems, and automating remote file syncs. The automatic running of tests while I’m refactoring and coding is a key feature for me. JetBrains is regularly adding new features, and it’s super easy to pick up.
