How to make RubyMine aware of Cucumber steps defined in gems

If your Ruby project includes a gem like Spreewald that comes with some external step definition, RubyMine does not know about them by default and will highlight the step as an undefined reference:

To link these external step definitions to RubyMine, add the corresponding gems to your RubyMine-Settings:

  • Go to Settings (ctrl + alt + s)
  • Go to Languages and Frameworks
  • Go to Cucumber
  • There, add your gem (e.g "spreewald") via the little "+" from the bar on the right .

You might have to restart RubyMine to see the expected result.

Now, RubyMine no longer complains about undefined step definitions and allows you to dig into the definition via ctrl + b or ctrl + click.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
