Difference between RubyMine and IDEA ruby plugin

HI,

 

I've just decided to give learning ruby a go and was wondering where to start? With IDEA + Ruby plugin or RubyMine?

 

I was also hoping to get a handle on what the major differences where.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

S.

Hello Spencer,

 

I've just decided to give learning ruby a go and was wondering where

to start? With IDEA + Ruby plugin or RubyMine?

 

I was also hoping to get a handle on what the major differences where.

 

RubyMine has simpler UI in a number of areas like project management, settings

etc. The Ruby plugin supports Java/Ruby integration for JRuby code.

 

If you're not using the Java/Ruby integration, RubyMine is a better place

to start.
