IRB integration

To use awesome_print as default formatter in irb and Rails console add the following code to your ~/.irbrc file:

require "awesome_print"
AwesomePrint.irb!

PRY integration

If you miss awesome_print's way of formatting output, here's how you can use it in place of the formatting which comes with pry. Add the following code to your ~/.pryrc:

require "awesome_print"
AwesomePrint.pry!

Logger Convenience Method

awesome_print adds the 'ap' method to the Logger and ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger classes letting you call:

logger.ap object

By default, this logs at the :debug level. You can override that globally with:

:log_level => :info

in the custom defaults (see below). You can also override on a per call basis with:

logger.ap object, :warn

ActionView Convenience Method

awesome_print adds the 'ap' method to the ActionView::Base class making it available within Rails templates. For example:

   # ERB
!= ap @accounts.first       # HAML

With other web frameworks (ex: in Sinatra templates) you can explicitly request HTML formatting:

 true %>

String Convenience Methods

Use methods such as

.red
to set string color:
irb> puts "red text".red
red text # (it's red)

Setting Custom Defaults

You can set your own default options by creating

.aprc
file in your home directory. Within that file assign your defaults to
AwesomePrint.defaults
. For example:
# ~/.aprc file.
AwesomePrint.defaults = {
  :indent => -2,
  :color => {
    :hash  => :pale,
    :class => :white
  }
}

Versioning

AwesomePrint follows the Semantic Versioning standard.
