Mina vs RubyMine: What are the differences?
Mina: Really fast deployer and server automation tool. Mina works really fast because it's a deploy Bash script generator. It generates an entire procedure as a Bash script and runs it remotely in the server. Compare this to the likes of Vlad or Capistrano, where each command is run separately on their own SSH sessions. Mina only creates one SSH session per deploy, minimizing the SSH connection overhead; RubyMine: The Most Intelligent Ruby and Rails IDE. JetBrains RubyMine IDE provides a comprehensive Ruby code editor aware of dynamic language specifics and delivers smart coding assistance, intelligent code refactoring and code analysis capabilities.
Mina and RubyMine are primarily classified as "Server Configuration and Automation" and "Integrated Development Environment" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Mina are:
- Safe deploys. New releases are built on a temp folder. If the deploy script fails at any point, the build is deleted and it’d be as if nothing happened.
- Locks. Deploy scripts rely on a lockfile ensuring only one deploy can happen at a time.
- Works with anything. While Mina is built with Rails projects it mind, it can be used on just about any type of project deployable via SSH, Ruby or not.
On the other hand, RubyMine provides the following key features:
- Intelligent Ruby Editor
- On-the-fly code analysis
- Rails Models Diagram, Rails Project View
"Easy, fast and light weight" is the top reason why over 5 developers like Mina, while over 61 developers mention "Productive" as the leading cause for choosing RubyMine.
Mina is an open source tool with 4.05K GitHub stars and 453 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mina's open source repository on GitHub.
Typeform, Accenture, and Movielala are some of the popular companies that use RubyMine, whereas Mina is used by Master Of Code Global, deppbot, and Bivee. RubyMine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 92 company stacks & 47 developers stacks; compared to Mina, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.

What tools integrate with Mina?
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 favorite IDE for developing Ruby. It integrates other tools like bundler, rake and Testcases in a comfortable way.
RubyMine is the IDE of choice for this project due to window management, testing integration and refactoring capabilities.
