JetBrain has announced to include official CoffeeScript support in the upcoming RubyMine 3.2 release and they took CoffeeBrew as a groundwork. So you can expect superior CoffeeScript integration in RubyMine soon.

For this reason, CoffeeBrew is not developed actively anymore.

Please check out the RubyMine 3.2 EAP and report issues to JetBrains.


CoffeeBrew is a plugin for your JetBrains IDE to develop your CoffeeScript.

  • Syntax highlighting with a color settings preference pane
  • Commenting and uncommenting of line and block comments
  • Highlighting of matching braces


The plugin can be installed via the JetBrains plugin manager from within your IDE.

CoffeeBrew RubyMine theme

CoffeeBrew RubyMine theme

The CoffeeBrew RubyMine theme provides a dark color scheme that extends the fabulous RailsCast theme with fine grained CoffeeScript colors. The font on the screenshot is Meslo LG S DZ.

To install the CoffeeBrew color scheme in RubyMine 3.0.1 on Max OS X, just download CoffeeBrew.xml to ~/Library/Preferences/RubyMine30/colors, restart the IDE and select the new color scheme in your preferences. For other platforms the folder within the Preferences directory is different, e.g. RubyMine31, IntelliJIdea10CE or IntelliJIdea9, to just name a few.
