Rails 3 pry initializer

branch: master
Readme.md

Description

Avoid repeating yourself, use pry-rails instead of copying the initializer to every rails project. This is a small gem which causes rails console to open pry. It therefore depends on pry.

Prerequisites

  • A Rails >= 3.0 Application

Installation

Add this line to your gemfile:

gem 'pry-rails', :group => :development

bundle install and enjoy pry.

Usage

$ rails console
[1] pry(main)> show-routes
     pokemon POST   /pokemon(.:format)      pokemons#create
 new_pokemon GET    /pokemon/new(.:format)  pokemons#new
edit_pokemon GET    /pokemon/edit(.:format) pokemons#edit
             GET    /pokemon(.:format)      pokemons#show
             PUT    /pokemon(.:format)      pokemons#update
             DELETE /pokemon(.:format)      pokemons#destroy
        beer POST   /beer(.:format)         beers#create
    new_beer GET    /beer/new(.:format)     beers#new

Developing and Testing

To generate Gemfiles for Rails 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and 4.0, run rake appraisal:gemfiles appraisal:install.

You can then run the tests across all four versions with rake appraisal. You can also manually run the Rails console and server with rake appraisal console and rake appraisal server.

For a specific version of Rails, use rake appraisal:rails30, rake appraisal:rails31, rake appraisal:rails32, or rake appraisal:rails4.
