Make up for Rails console

Peeps!!!! i felt that i should have done this earlier... Being a ROR dev i really feel uncomfortable to examine this default rails console. A linter or formatter for this problem might be a solution. Now comes the magic..scroll bottom !!!!

Just follow these 3 steps and make the magic happen!!!

  • Just add awesome_print gem in development group in Gemfile which is located in root path of your application.
group :development do
   gem 'awesome_print'
end
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • Add this code block in by doing vim ~/.pryrc
require "awesome_print"
AwesomePrint.pry!
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and save it by :wq!

  • This file is called when our rails console starts. so no need of running source ~./pryrc

Here you go.. just play around rails console now . PEACE
For more details you can refer documentation https://github.com/awesome-print/awesome_print
