debugger Jump to Story

If you’ve given Ruby 1.9.3 a try since last summer you’re probably aware that ruby-debug19 isn’t compatible with it which has prevented some people from upgrading because their debugging workflow is tied to the gem. Pry, a new debugger which comes with its own ecosystem has already been working fine with 1.9.3 for a long time. It's a great tool and you should be giving it a try. But Pry is not exactly like ruby-debug. So the good news for you conservative debuggers out there is that the ruby-debug19 project was forked by Gabriel Horner and you can now use his new gem simply called debugger which is fully compatible with Ruby 1.9.3.
