Ruby On Rails India

As far as I know there are very few people working on RubyOnRails in India. Vinayak solutions Pvt. Ltd. is doing great in this field. Recently Manik Juneja (Director) attended the Rails conf. Landon and last week traveled Colombo to train a team of web programmers on Ruby on Rails.

Tab completion in irb

irb has tab completion support, you need to activate this by requiring ‘irb/completion’. You can load it when you invoke irb from the command line:

% irb -r irb/completion

Or you can load the completion library when irb is running:

% irb(main):005:0> require 'irb/completion'

If you often use tab completion then:

Linux users: Can create an alias in .bashrc by following these steps:

  • % vi ~/.bashrc
  • add alias irbtc="irb -r 'irb/completion'"
  • % source ~/.bashrc

Windows Users: Can create a file named irbtc.bat in your windows\system32 folder as irb -r "irb/completion" the file content.

Now you can run irb with tab completion support by:
% irbtc


% irbtc
irb(main):001:0> st="this is a string"
=> "this is a string"
irb(main):002:0> st.len
irb(main):002:0> st.length
=> 16
irb(main):003:0> st.up
st.upcase st.upcase! st.upto
irb(main):003:0> st.up
