powerful irb alternative and runtime developer console


Pry is a powerful alternative to the standard IRB shell for Ruby. It is written from scratch to provide a number of advanced features, some of these include:

 - Source code browsing (including core C source with the pry-doc gem)
 - Documentation browsing
 - Live help system
 - Open methods in editors (`edit-method Class#method`)
 - Syntax highlighting
 - Command shell integration (start editors, run git, and rake from
   within Pry)
 - Gist integration
 - Navigation around state (`cd`, `ls` and friends)
 - Runtime invocation (use Pry as a developer console or debugger)
 - Exotic object support (BasicObject instances, IClasses, ...)
 - A Powerful and flexible command system
 - Ability to view and replay history
 - Many convenience commands inspired by IPython, Smalltalk and other
   advanced REPLs
