Irb in Firefox tab

Hi,

I want to embed IRB in a Firefox tab. I know that its feasible as _why
has done so already, but the code was said to be too flawed to release
it to the wild public.

My question now is, as to how to realize it?

Irb in a firefox tab is on my todo list :wink: but unfortunately, I am not
sure how difficult it would be. I am not even sure where to start, any
pointers are welcome. (I dont care about fancy stuff, only about the
base functionality of having exactly an irb-like widget thing in a
firefox tab. And I am perfectly fine with it running only on my pc.)

Are you referring to a permanent add on that is dependent on a local run
of irb, or a server based instance of irb that is accessed over http?
Either should be fairly doable, itโ€™s just a matter of whether weโ€™re
talking a plugin or a web app.

This may be the shortest path:
