RubyMine & Git Integration

Hello all,

I am a recent newcomer to the RubyMine product and also a newcomer to the wonderful world that it Git.

So far everything is forging ahead quite well, however I have one question which hopefully someone out there can help me with.

When creating a project from scratch in RubyMine and choosing Git as the version control method the environment variables I have setup for Git such as user.name and user.email do not appear in dialog boxes when committing.

I have come across another posting on this site which states to set ones environment variables in /etc/launchd.conf so that variables are made available to RubyMine when starting the product, will this solve the problem?

Could it futher be my choice of using the IDEA SSH client as opposed to the Native SSH implementation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks everyone!

Hello Ethan,

Note that the "Author" combobox in the commit dialog is not supposed to show
your name and e-mail. It's used when you're committing a patch created by
a different developer, and allows you to specify the name of the author of
the patch. RubyMine doesn't show your user name/email anywhere in the commit
UI, but nevertheless it should be correctly transmitted to git and shown
correctly in File History.

Does that answer your question?

Many thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

It all makes sense now.

I was just concerned that author tracking information was not being supplied via RubyMine.

Thanks once more.

Issue closed.
