Autocomplete Ruby by Ian Hattendorf

Install with:
    apm install autocomplete-ruby

Atom Autocomplete+ Ruby Suggestions

Dependency status GitHub version

Provides intelligent code completion for Ruby. Requires RSense and Autocomplete+.


Currently pre-alpha, buggy and not fully implemented. All help is welcome.

Note: It doesn’t seem like RSense is being developed any more. Any bugs/issues related to rsense itself will need to be reported in that repo, and probably won’t be fixed.


Because I wanted Ruby code completion in Atom and atom-rsense is broken and hasn’t been updated since June 2014.


Make sure you have Java installed on your machine.

Install rsense: shell $ gem install rsense

If you get an error about not being able to find rsense after opening a ruby file, you will need to set the path to the rsense binary in the plugin settings. The path is different depending on which OS/Ruby environment manager you are using. Executing which rsense or gem environment might help you locate it.


Just type some stuff, and autocomplete+ will automatically show you some suggestions.

Note: If you use Winows, it might take about 10 seconds after the first suggestions pop up before rsense will give you any suggestions.


A lot. If you’re brave enough to try this out and notice any specifically, feel free to open an issue or even better submit a pull request.


Clone the repository into your working directory: shell $ git clone

Install dependencies: shell $ cd autocomplete-ruby $ apm install

Link to Atom as a dev package: shell $ apm link --dev

Feel free to fork it and submit a pull request for any changes you make.
