How To Install RubyMine on CentOS 8

Install RubyMine on CentOS 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install RubyMine on CentOS 8. For those of you who didn’t know, RubyMine is an all-new IDE for Ruby and Rails developers, developed by JetBrains (best known for Java IDE IntelliJ IDEA). RubyMine builds upon the IntelliJ IDEA platform and brings together all of the essential features you expect of an IDE (editor, debugging tools, source control integration, code completion, and so forth) along with lots of extra goodies specific to Ruby, such as GUI-based support for RSpec and Test.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step-by-step installation RubyMine on a CentOS 8 server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: CentOS 8.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
