Nuclide vs RubyMine: What are the differences?

Developers describe Nuclide as "An open IDE for web and native mobile development, built on top of Atom (by Facebook)". A unified developer experience for web and mobile development, built as a suite of packages on top of Atom to provide hackability and the support of an active community. On the other hand, RubyMine is detailed as "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.

Nuclide and RubyMine belong to "Integrated Development Environment" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Nuclide are:

  • Remote development. At Facebook, our web and back-end engineers work on remote development servers in our data centers. Nuclide provides a pair of packages that allow connections over SSH to a lightweight node daemon on the server, making possible remote file editing and syntax/type validation. Of course, this also works for VMs, enabling local development on HHVM, for example.
  • Hack language support. The Hack codebase is one of the largest at Facebook. First-class Hack support — including syntax highlighting, type-checking, autocomplete, and click-to-symbol features — has been an important requirement on Nuclide from the start. We're also excited that the growing Hack community outside the company will be able to enjoy dedicated IDE support.
  • Flow support. For both local and remote JavaScript development, Flow has brought type integrity and the ability to quickly refactor our React components and apps. As it does for Hack, Nuclide supports Flow-specific decorations and editor features in @flow-annotated files.

On the other hand, RubyMine provides the following key features:

  • Intelligent Ruby Editor
  • On-the-fly code analysis
  • Rails Models Diagram, Rails Project View

"Remote development with SSH" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Nuclide, while over 61 developers mention "Productive" as the leading cause for choosing RubyMine.

Nuclide is an open source tool with 8K GitHub stars and 747 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Nuclide's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, RubyMine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 91 company stacks & 46 developers stacks; compared to Nuclide, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

    #Help

    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

    I work at the same company as you and I use WebStorm for 99% of my tasks. I also have RubyMine installed and use that when I have to tweak some backend code. I tried using RubyMine for JavaScript but was unhappy with how it felt and I believe that WebStorm is faster because it has less plugins and language extensions running. Summary: Buy and use WebStorm for primary development and keep VS Code around for when you have to touch Ruby.
