Awesome Print

On a recent Ruby Tapas episode (my favourite screencast service), Avdi introduced the Awesome Print gem. It’s basically the built in pp on steroids. You require the gem then use it via ap method call to awesome print something to the screen. However, my favourite way to use Awesome Print is to make it the default output in Pry.

To get this behaviour, you’ll need to gem install awesome_print, then modify your ~/.pryrc.

ruby require 'awesome_print' AwesomePrint.pry!

Give it a whirl, I promise you’ll never go back. Also, subscribe to RubyTapas for more Ruby awesomeness!
