    Connect to Pry remotely

    I use pry-remote in ruby/rails: https://github.com/Mon-Ouie/pry-remote

  • Pry

    A runtime developer console and IRB alternative with powerful introspection capabilities.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Byebug

    Debugging in Ruby 2

    Others have been suggesting byebug, but for us it started causing random constant loading errors on Ruby 3 in Rails, due to Zeitwerk compatibility issues. So I'm quite happy that the debug gem came in as a replacement. I did like that pry-byebug allows stepping in a normal Pry console, I expect the debug gem will require some getting used to.

  • Pry Byebug

    Step-by-step debugging and stack navigation in Pry
