Suggestion: Run simple scripts

It would be nice if one could run simple Ruby scripts in the IDE without having to put any specific structure in place. Kind of like having an IDE wrapper on irb, with autocomplete, syntax coloring, etc.

Hell jharley,

Rubymine is built on IntelliJ IDEA platform, which has a strong concept of project. We cannot tell anything now if this is going to change somehow.
Thus you can just create simple ruby project from folder, containing your file and run it easily from context menu (Right click | Run) or using hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+F10).

Thanks,
Oleg

Jonathan,
We have an issue about IRB (and Rails console). Vote and track the issue http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/RUBY-235
