Rails Support

Studio is shipped with a built-in support for Rails editing. This is additional support beyond that described in Ruby Development, HTML Development, CSS Development, and JavaScript Development.

It should be noted that Studio relies on developers to be familiar with the standard Rails command-line tools, generators, and tasks. RadRails used to provide UI view front-ends to the generators, servers, etcand so forth. In Studio, we embed a Terminal view and expect users to be familiar with Rails enough to be able to generate models, controllers, etc and so forth and run servers from the command line.

We highly recommend that users install Rails via Rails Installer. It will properly install a compatible PortableGit that works with our git support, as well as Ruby, Rails, and DevKit, so that native gem installation works properly.

To import a rails project (whether created inside the IDE previously , or outside the IDE on the command line), you can use the Rails Project Wizard as outlined above - but simply point it at the existing rails project root. It will detect that files exist and will not run the rails generator over top of the existing files. You can also explicitly state that the generator not be run in case that detection fails.

RadRails 2.x used to provide UI front-ends to the generator, server, plugin, and gems for your project. Often this UI was difficult to keep working across multiple rails versions and tended to offer little advantage to just using the command line to achieve your goal.
