Wirble: A ruby gem that gives tab-completion + syntax coloring to irb

Ruby Inside has a
blog post
on an add-on to irb that allows tab-completion and syntax coloring for irb. Way cool!
The install instructions are simple as:

  1. Install Ruby Gems (You DO have this installed, right?)
  2. sudo gem install -y wirble
  3. Then add the following to $HOME/.irbrc

    require ‘rubygems’
    require ‘wirble’

Then enjoy working with ruby in full (ascii) technicolor.
