It is minor mode for editing Ruby On Rails code with Emacs.


  • Navigation
    Go from unit test to model to controller to functional test to view to spec etc.
  • Running tests and specs
    Run test or spec for the current model, controller, lib etc.
  • Console and webserver
    Run this console and webserver in a buffer.
  • Snippets
    Use snippets to speedup code writing and editing.

Try C-h b to find out what key bindings are available and see M-x customize-group <RET> rails for all the knobs and switches.



Before you install this package make sure the following dependencies met:

  • Ruby Mode
  • Inferior Ruby Mode

These are installable via the ELPA or using apt-get install ruby-elisp. Some Emacs distributions include them by default.


Pull the latest version from github:

  git clone git:// ~/.emacs.d/rails-minor-mode

Hook it up in your .emacs or .emacs.d/init.el with something like:

  (add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/rails-minor-mode"))
  (require 'rails)

You’re ready to go.


You can find HAML and SASS support via ELPA.


The latest from github:

  git clone git:// ~/.emacs.d/rhtml-minor-mode

  (require 'rhtml-mode)


Latest from subversion repo:

  svn co ~/.emacs.d/yaml-mode

  (add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/yaml-mode"))
  (require 'yaml-mode)


Yes! Plenty! And most of them known, ignored and yearning for your attention! Please fork this repository and fix the stuff that bothers you.


A big thanks to Dmitry Galinsky for starting this project. Since then a lot of people touched it too, checkout the commit logs.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
