Add the Rails console to your browser!

Rack/Rails web-console

Rails web console

[UPDATE]:  Please note, this gem is for DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES ONLY.  Do not use in production.

I came across an awesome gem today: rack-webconsole.  As the name suggests, it adds the rails console to your browser!  No more switching back and forth between the terminal.  This gem is awesome!  This has to be the easiest installation too.  Just add this line to your Gemfile:

gem 'rack-webconsole'

Once you’ve bundled:

bundle install

Just restart your web server and you’re up and running.  Bingo!  Unity.

If you really don’t understand how useful this is, then you really need to read the Secrets of the Rails Console Ninjas.
