How to automatically add files created by `rails generate` to VCS?

Does anyone know if this is possible?  I'd like the files created by running a generator in the RubyMine IDE to be added to my VCS (mercurial) automatically.  I don't mind writing a plugin or getting fancy if someone can point me in the right direction.

Re: How to automatically add files created by `rails generate` to VCS?

Hello David,


If files are generated inside RubyMine and created through VFS, VCS listener will be aware of them and settings in Settings | Version Control | Confirmation

applies to the case.


If files are created in other way (not through VFS), you can add them programmatically through:


/* public final RefreshSession createSession(boolean async, boolean recursive, @Nullable Runnable finishRunnable) */

!!! finishRunnable is called _under write action_

be careful


    final RefreshSession session = RefreshQueue.getInstance().createSession(true, true, new Runnable() {

      public void run() {


        // here in callback files are already known to VFS and now we can add them

    final ChangeListManagerImpl changeListManager = ChangeListManagerImpl.getInstanceImpl(project));

    changeListManager.addUnversionedFiles(changeListManager.getDefaultChangeList(), unversionedFiles);

// files will be visible in change list manager after its inner update. not synchronously after this call





    session.launch();     // starts refresh
