Debug Ruby/Rails in Visual Studio Code (a perfect RubyMine alternative)

VS Code allows users to extend its functionality for grammar, intellisense, or even debugging, so I wrote this extension called vscode-ruby to bring VS Code the ability to debug ruby/rails/etc.

RubyMine or NetBeans leverages ruby-debug-ide, which is totally open sourced, to debug ruby code, so we are able to implement the same mechanism as RubyMine/NetBeans. Till now, we have supported below features in VS Code:

  • Ruby scripts debugging
    • Line breakpoints (add, delete, disable, enable)
    • Step over, step in, step out, continue, pause
    • Multiple, parallel threads
    • Call stack
    • Scope variables
    • Debug console
    • Watch window
    • Variables evaluate/inspect
    • Stop on entry
    • Breaking on uncaught exceptions and errors
    • Attach requests
  • Ruby remote debug
  • Rails

The development is still in progress and more frameworks will be supported later on. Give VS Code and this extension a try, tell us what we can do better, or you can subscribe to our mailing list for updates if interested.
