Add colored '*********', time and line number around printed value. It's easier to find such output in a long console output.

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'super_awesome_print'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install super_awesome_print

You can optionally customize configuration in an initializer.
In Rails, you can add the following to config/initializers/super_awesome_print.rb:

SuperAwesomePrint.configure do |config|
  config.caller_lines = 3 # defaults to 1
  config.blank_lines_top = 2 # defaults to 0
  config.blank_lines_bottom = 2 # defaults to 0
  config.root_path = Rails.root.to_s # this path will be removed from caller's files path, defaults to Rails.root.to_s
  config.log_file_path = '/some/path/to/log/file' # override default log file for `sapf`


Just use sap global function to print any variable.

You can also print to a file

sapf 'hello world'

By default it will print everything to sapf.log file in current directory or to log/sapf.log if you're on Rails. See log_file_path config option to override this.

Also, take a look at cop for RuboCop to make sap didn't leak into production.
