Existing Rails Application


I have several existing Ruby on Rails applications on my development system.  I am wondering the best approach to using RubyMine to edit any of those?  I see there is Create Project and Open Project but how does one create a new RubyMine project from an existing Ruby on Rails application?

Thank you,

Hello Rob,

You should use File | Open Directory. This action allows to open existing RM projects or create new from existing sources. If you open in RubyMine one of your rails projects RM will create folder ".idea" (in the root directory of project) which will be used for storing RubyMine's project settings.

Thank you for the quick reply.  I saw this and wasn't sure it was the right way to go but yes..this worked great and created my project.
