Pry Support for Web Console
If you are one of those folks that prefer
IRB for the Rails'
console you can use this adapter to put a
Pry session in your Web Console.
To install it in your current application, add the following to your
group :development do gem 'web-console-pry', '~> 0.2.0' end
After you save the
Gemfile changes, make sure to run
bundle install and
restart your server for the Web Console to take affect.
By design, Web Console follows Rails' console configuration. This simply
means, that it will use
IRB, unless configured otherwise.
# You may need to require 'pry' to get the ::Pry constant. require 'pry' class Application < Rails::Application config.console = ::Pry end
For the full list of configuration options, visit Web Console homepage.
Web Console doesn't try to be a terminal emulator. While we try to provide what makes sense for a good user experience, we realize that Terminal Emulators are hard and even harder to put on the Web.
Long story short, we'll explicitly disable
Pry pager and colored output for
the Web Console session.
(Color support will probably make it into the future versions, though.)
