ConsoleColor adds the color-coded application name and environment to your Rails console prompt.
By default, the prompt is green in development, red in production, and yellow elsewhere. Alternatively, you can specify a custom color in an initializer (using the bash colorization codes):
ConsoleColor::COLORS['production'] = "\e[35m" # pink
Note that one can set the
CONSOLE_COLOR_ENV var to override the Rails
$ CONSOLE_COLOR_ENV=staging RAILS_ENV=production rails console app_name:staging>Rails.env => "production"
This way you can set your staging Rails env to production to mimic that configuration but have your prompt reflect that you're using on the staging server.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install console_color
- Fork it
- Create your feature branch (
git checkout -b my-new-feature)
- Commit your changes (
git commit -am 'Add some feature')
- Push to the branch (
git push origin my-new-feature)
- Create new Pull Request
