       I want to develop a command line environment using ruby, it can
           - edit the command line online,  like vi mode or emacs mode
in bash
           - support command history and history searching
           - the command is not the real shell command. It is just a
string , when hit enter, this string will pass to another class to

        Is there any package to use?
       Or any other advice?

You could also pick up cmd [0], which is no longer in development but is
fairly easily extended and might well suffice for simple cases.
