# The following comments fill some of the gaps in Solargraph's understanding of
# Rails apps. Since they're all in YARD, they get mapped in Solargraph but
# ignored at runtime.
# @!parse
# class ActionController::Base
# include ActionController::MimeResponds
# extend ActiveSupport::Callbacks::ClassMethods
# extend AbstractController::Callbacks::ClassMethods
# end
# class ActiveRecord::Base
# extend ActiveRecord::QueryMethods

Set up:

  • Install the Ruby Solargraph VS Code extension and disable Use Bundler
  • Run $ gem install solargraph solargraph-rails
  • Update the Ruby Solargraph VS Code extension's command path to point to the abolute path of your solargraph install. (e.g. /Users/justin/.rbenv/shims/solargraph)
  • Add the contents of this gist to the root of the project and git ignore them
  • In your project root run $ solargraph bundle
  • In your project root run $ yard gems
  • Run the Developer: Reload Window command for VS Code


  • Visit your app/models/application_record.rb
  • Navigate over the Base in ApplicationRecord::Base
  • Right-click Peek -> Peek Definition and the pop-up view should include a reference to base.rb from inside the `activerecord gem

Hey Nunes! In truth I never got this to work. My setup is still not in a state I could recommend :(
