Pry – a powerful alternative to the standard IRB shell for Ruby Jump to Story

Pry is a Rubygem written by John Mair which provides a much more powerful IRB-like interactive Ruby console. It's based on SLIME (the Superior Lisp Interaction Mode for Emacs). It allows for in console source code browsing, code traversal, debugging, and real-time monkey patching, not to mention direct access to documentation for both native Ruby and C-implemented methods.
