Wirble on Windoze without Rails

Posted on February 09, 2009

Although Linux is a clear choice among all Operating Systems I’ve tried, unfortunately I have to use windoze xp when running Ruby + Watir. One good feature I miss from Linux is Wirble on the console. I’ve been thinking how cool it is to have Wirble run on the command line when I explore Watir objects.

I never thought it was possible on windoze until i found this post by Alexey:

I modified some steps to make it work for my non-rails irb console:

1. First, install wirble and the win32console gem

gem install wirble win32console

2. I copied Alexey’s w.rb and saved it to c:\some\location

#— for wirble
require ‘rubygems’ rescue nil
require ‘win32/console/ansi’
ENV[‘IRB_HISTORY_FILE’] = “c:\.irb_history”
#load rubygems and wirble
require ‘wirble’
#load wirble
Wirble.init
Wirble.colorize
#—

3. then I created a wirble.bat batch file for convenience to load the w.rb

echo off
cls
irb -r c:\some\location\w.rb

4. Finally, open wirble.bat and enjoy the pretty colors

I also have a shortcut of wirble.bat on my quick launch toolbar and added c:\some\location to my system variable path so I can just type “wirble” in the Run window.

    <p>Some time ago, I did need to buy a building for my firm but I didn&#8217;t earn enough cash and couldn&#8217;t purchase something. Thank God my brother adviced to take the mortgage loans from reliable creditors. Thence, I did that and was satisfied with my short term loan.</p>
