    byebug - this elevates debugging Ruby applications. It allows you to run a program line by line, add breakpoints, and evaluate and track values at runtime. If you still use puts for debugging, it's time you get to know Byebug's features and commands.

    For debugging purposes, I recommend a few gems that will get you started and allow you to play with ruby code in your terminal and manage ruby gems. Gems like bundler pry and byebug do it good and you can check out the official docs, Pry, Byebug, Bundler, These gems need to be accessed globally.
  • What gem is used with conjunction with "pry" for step by step debugging?

    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.

    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.

    Maybe byebug (deivid-rodriguez/byebug: Debugging in Ruby 2) is most famous Ruby's debugger in recent years. byebug has enough features, however it doesn't utilize recent added TracePoint features for debuggers, so it is slow when some breakpoint is set.
