Run your program with Ruby Jard

How to run your program with Ruby Jard

To use Ruby Jard, you just need to put jard magic method before any places you want to stop. Jard supports stopping at anywhere, including top level binding, instance methods, class methods, string evaluation, or even inside a class declaration.

def test_method(input)
  a = 1
  b = 2
  jard # Debugger will stop here
  c = a + b + input
end

class TestClass
  jard # Yes, it can stop here too
  @dirty_class_method = 1 + 1

  def test_method
    jard
  end

  def self.test_class_method
    jard
  end
end

jard
test_method(5)

Afterward, run your program, just like normally. If your program meets jard execution break point, it gonna stop, show the UI, and let you debug.

In case you meet error undefined local variable or method jard, please require ruby_jard manually at initializing scripts. If you use Ruby Jard with famous frameworks, ruby_jard will be loaded by default

require 'ruby_jard'
