Quicklog

Provides an easy way to log a variable value with its label.

Instead of doing

puts "my_var = #{my_var}"

write

ql :my_var

For Ruby 2+ only.

Additional features

  • display output in reverse video, it's easier to see
  • not limited to variable logging, can log anything that can be converted to a string

Examples

  • logging an object attribute: ql :"@user.name"
  • logging a plain string: ql "hello world!"

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'quicklog'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install quicklog

Credits

I wanted the same kind of functionality that the lll gem offers, but with a shorter syntax.

I found the solution I needed in this stackoverflow answer.
