A ripl plugin to playback ruby code in ripl coming from files, urls or stdin. Also records a ripl session for playback later.
Install the gem with:
sudo gem install ripl-play
To be able to playback multi-line code:
sudo gem install ripl-multi_line # Add to ~/.riplrc require 'ripl/multi_line'
ripl play plays its input, line by line, as if each line were input by a user.
To play a url:
$ ripl play https://gist.github.com/725338 >> a = 10 ** 2 => 100 >> a + 10 => 110 >>
To playback a url quietly (i.e. you just want to load the url into ripl):
$ ripl play https://gist.github.com/725338 -q >> a = 10 ** 2 >> a + 10 >>
To playback a url with relevant gems automatically installed (you may want to create an rvm gemset before doing this)
$ ripl play https://gist.github.com/622668 -i Can I install the following gems: tilt, erubis ? ([y]/n) ....
Urls should point to raw text except for gists and any github file url (like this) which are autoconverted.
ripl play can also playback files or from stdin:
# Plays script.rb line by line $ ripl play script.rb >> ... # Plays back last 10 lines of irb history $ tail -10 ~/.irb_history | ripl play >> ...
If you want to share a ripl session for playback later, start ripl with record:
# By default record saves to ripl_tape. Pass an argument to explicitly name the file $ ripl record >> :do_something => :do_something >> ... => ... <Control-D>
After exiting, the file ripl_tape will contain all of your inputs from that session. Now anyone can playback that session with
# play defaults to ripl_tape # Assuming you're in the same directory as ripl_tape $ ripl play >> :do_something => :do_something >> ... => ... >>
