Who uses RubyMine?
Why developers like RubyMine?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose RubyMine in their tech stack.
When I switched to Visual Studio Code 12 months ago from PhpStorm I was in love, it was great. However after using VS Code for a year, I see myself switching back and forth between WebStorm and VS Code. The VS Code plugins are great however I notice Prettier, auto importing of components and linking to the definitions often break, and I have to restart VS Code multiple times a week and sometimes a day.
We use Ruby here so I do like that Visual Studio Code highlights that for me out of the box, with WebStorm I'd need to probably also install RubyMine and have 2 IDE's going at the same time.
Should I stick with Visual Studio Code, or switch to something else? #help
RubyMine is my IDE of choice because no other IDE exists that is designed to be as powerful & specific to development in Ruby on Rails. Plus, it supports all the other languages as well, & with a full license you get access to the other language suites by Jetbrains.
As far as features, it has a full-featured debugger that synchronizes with the browser when running a rails server. The "Tool Windows" for Version Control & the Docker Add-On are also frequently used by me, and they're amazing. I have several code snippets and live templates that I use, Emmet plugin, the list goes on. It has every feature you can imagine with a stack of great plugins that are all very evolved since they're not just for RubyMine, but all of JetBrains suite of software.
If you are a Rails or Ruby developer, you absolutely must use this to make your development faster.
