Tab-Completion and Syntax coloring for irb (Ruby Interpreter)
Wirble is a Ruby Gem that provides Tab-Completion and syntax coloring for the Ruby interpreter,
irb. In this article we'll see how to install it and configure it.
Open a terminal window and run:
sudo gem install wirble && echo -n "require 'rubygems'\nrequire 'wirble'\nWirble.init\nWirble.colorize" >> ~/.irbrc
Now that Wirble is installed and
irbrc is properly configured, (re)open
irb and then you can start using the "TAB" key to auto-complete while typing a Ruby instruction. Only the results will be colorized, not the instructions typed.
