Seattle.rb IRB presentation

I gave a lightening talk about IRB (Interactive Ruby Shell) at Seattle.rb on 01/08/2013.

Here is my speaker deck:

Here my notes and example irbrc's:

The irbtools gem is really massive in all of the features it curates together. As mentioned in the deck, I prefer a more simple setup of:

  • integrated vim to edit/paste code via the interactive editor gem
  • load/save command history (require 'irb/ext/save-history')
  • tab completion on object methods (require 'irb/completion')
