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,

to start? With IDEA + Ruby plugin or RubyMine?

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.
