Here’s my old list of links… maybe something in there would be useful.

You might try searching github for irbrc files. A lot of developers
store their “dotfiles” there now. Here’s my .irbrc, for example:

I’ve written some irb tutorials you might find handy:

Some irb-related gems I’ve released:

hirb (http://tagaholic.me/hirb/) - Pretty print ruby objects as
tables, trees …
bond (http://tagaholic.me/bond/) - Custom autocompletion for an
object’s methods, a method’s arguments and more
alias (http://tagaholic.me/alias/) - Configurable aliasing for
methods, classes, constants and more
