Managing the development environment on virtual machines and remote hosts sometimes takes a lot of time and effort. This is why we've worked hard to let you add and set up a remote SDK. Then you can run, test and debug your remote app.

0. Prerequisites

  • Make sure your ssh-session to a remote host is open.
  • You will also need to open a local copy of a remote app you're going to work with.

1. Configure a Remote Host Access

Go to Settings - Deployment and press + to add a new remote server access configuration:

Set up connection settings:

Switch to the Mappings tab and fill in a path to a remote app:

2. Choose a Remote SDK

Now you can choose a remote SDK for your local copy of an app. Go to Settings - Ruby SDK and Gems and press Add SDK.... Choose New remote... option:

Import your setting from a deployment server you've created:

Note you can use vagrant config to import a remote host settings as well.

Make sure remote Ruby interpreter path is correct:

When adding an rvm-based remote interpreter, it is important to specify the gem set in the Ruby interpreter path:

<rvm root>/gems/<gem set>

Remote SDK is now configured:

3. Synchronize Your Changes

To make your changes synchronized automatically go to Settings - Deployment - Options and set Upload changed files automatically to the default server to Always:

Please note, you can synchronize your files and folders manually or change the settings any time from Tools - Deployment menu. To browse remote host folders and files with color highlighting for synchronized ones go to Tools - Deployment - Browse Remote Host:

4. Work with a Remote Application

Now all the changes will be synchronized with a remote app. You can also run and debug your application:

Note you should use the same port number that is used on a remote host for running the app on a localhost.
