caldersphere's drbirb-1.0.0 Documentation

DESCRIPTION:

Small script/plugin to run a DRb/IRB server inside of your Ruby application, so you can poke around while it’s running.

Original code from Charles Lowe [ruby-talk:250220], I just wrapped up into a nice package, because I think this is a cool development and debugging tool.

[ruby-talk:250220]: blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/250220

REQUIREMENTS:

SYNOPSIS:

Start the server on localhost:7777:

  require 'drbirb/loader'

  # join the thread unless you have some other code that prevents the
  # interpreter from exiting
  Drbirb.server.thread.join

Start the server on a custom host/port:

  require 'drbirb/server'
  irb_host, irb_port = ...
  server = DRb.start_service "druby://#{irb_host}:#{irb_port}", IRB::RemoteService.new

  # join the thread unless you have some other code that prevents the
  # interpreter from exiting
  server.thread.join

Start the client:

  drbirbc
  drbirbc druby://localhost:7777

When intalled as a Rails plugin, the server is started automatically for you in the plugin’s init.rb.

INSTALL:

  gem install drbirb

To use in a Rails app (legacy/plugin):

  script/plugin install http://github.com/nicksieger/drbirb.git
