Customized test-runner plugin or engine for RubyMine

I am interested to see if it is possible to write a test runner for RubyMine which would behave similarly to the built in test/spec runner (i.e. showing the results in the run window with a tree-view of failing tests etc in the left pane) but using something like autotest/autospec to continually run the specs and update those results when the files are updated.

I have had a cursory look through the preferences, the plugin repos and the plugin documentation to see if there might be a pointer to implementing this or something similar, but I figure it might be worthwhile to ask here to see what the community might think?

Cheers.

Hi Matthew,

Most likely the requested functionality will be implemented in next version of RubyMine and we'll have to made some internal changes to make it possible.
