Ruby Gem to check the code for standards compiled in the Rails Style Guide repository. By http://www.rubyeffect.com


Rails Review

Rails Review gem checks your rails applications against style guides present at Rails Style Guide Repository and reports the code snippets where the style guide is not met.


Add this line to your application’s Gemfile in the development group:

gem 'rails_review'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rails_review


Run the following rake task to start the rails style guide checks on your application.

$ rake rails_review:start


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install.


  1. Fork it ( https://github.com/rubyeffect/rails_review/fork )
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create a new Pull Request


In the current version, 17 Rails Style Guide points are being checked. Further checks would be added in future commits.


The gem is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.
