Make sure you create the following
~/.pryrc to allow loading your Rails environment when firing up pry.
# Load plugins (only those I whitelist) Pry.config.should_load_plugins = false Pry.plugins["doc"].activate! # Launch Pry with access to the entire Rails stack. # If you have Pry in your Gemfile, you can pass: ./script/console --irb=pry instead. # If you don't, you can load it through the lines below :) rails = File.join Dir.getwd, 'config', 'environment.rb' if File.exist?(rails) && ENV['SKIP_RAILS'].nil? require rails if Rails.version[0..0] == "2" require 'console_app' require 'console_with_helpers' elsif Rails.version[0..0] == "3" require 'rails/console/app' require 'rails/console/helpers' else warn "[WARN] cannot load Rails console commands (Not on Rails2 or Rails3?)" end end if defined?(Rails) && Rails.env extend Rails::ConsoleMethods end
You should also take a look at the
pry-rails gem. The gist is also here for your convenience.
More details on setting up Pry can be found here.
