  • Byebug

    Debugging in Ruby 2

    As far as debugging tools go, the Byebug and Pry are two of the best gems I have found. They are used in different contexts, but for all intents and purposes, including them in your code will halt an operation and allow you to access whatever point in the code you halted within your terminal with a REPL.

  • faker

    A library for generating fake data such as names, addresses, and phone numbers. (by faker-ruby)

    If you are working on a new project in Ruby and want to seed it with data, but don't have the time or energy to manually seed every piece of data, Faker is a great gem. Install it with gem install faker, and include it in your gemfile.
