I’m finally able to announce the release of rudebug, a debugging
front-end for ruby-debug and other debugging libraries for Ruby. It is
based on Glade and Ruby-GNOME2.
It has support for stepping, you can type code into a code shell and
instantly see the results. The source code which is being executed is
displayed as well. There is syntax highlighting everywhere. You can
browse the current context in a fairly powerful way through the object
browser. You can also reference the object that is selected in the
object browser in the code shell. You can debug locally as well as
More information is available on the project home page. (Including a
more detailed project description, install guide, use guide and
explanation of the implementation.)
This was my project for last year’s Summer of Code. It should probably
have been released earlier. I hope it is still useful to the Ruby
Comments and feedback are highly welcome.
Thanks for your attention!
