breakpoint()
Alias for: debugger
capture(stream)

Captures the given stream and returns it:

stream = capture(:stdout) { puts 'notice' }
stream # => "notice\n"

stream = capture(:stderr) { warn 'error' }
stream # => "error\n"

even for subprocesses:

stream = capture(:stdout) { system('echo notice') }
stream # => "notice\n"

stream = capture(:stderr) { system('echo error 1>&2') }
stream # => "error\n"
Also aliased as: silence
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 84
def capture(stream)
  stream = stream.to_s
  captured_stream = Tempfile.new(stream)
  stream_io = eval("$#{stream}")
  origin_stream = stream_io.dup
  stream_io.reopen(captured_stream)

  yield

  stream_io.rewind
  return captured_stream.read
ensure
  captured_stream.close
  captured_stream.unlink
  stream_io.reopen(origin_stream)
end
class_eval(*args, &block)

#class_eval on an object acts like singleton_class.class_eval.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/singleton_class.rb, line 3
def class_eval(*args, &block)
  singleton_class.class_eval(*args, &block)
end
concern(topic, &module_definition)

A shortcut to define a toplevel concern, not within a module.

See Module::Concerning for more.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/concern.rb, line 7
def concern(topic, &module_definition)
  Object.concern topic, &module_definition
end
debugger()

Starts a debugging session if the debugger gem has been loaded (call rails server –debugger to do load it).

Also aliased as: breakpoint
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/debugger.rb, line 4
def debugger
  message = "\n***** Debugger requested, but was not available (ensure the debugger gem is listed in Gemfile/installed as gem): Start server with --debugger to enable *****\n"
  defined?(Rails) ? Rails.logger.info(message) : $stderr.puts(message)
end
enable_warnings()

Sets $VERBOSE to true for the duration of the block and back to its original value afterwards.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 19
def enable_warnings
  with_warnings(true) { yield }
end
quietly()

Silences both STDOUT and STDERR, even for subprocesses.

quietly { system 'bundle install' }

This method is not thread-safe.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 107
def quietly
  silence_stream(STDOUT) do
    silence_stream(STDERR) do
      yield
    end
  end
end
silence(stream)
Alias for: capture
silence_stream(stream)

Silences any stream for the duration of the block.

silence_stream(STDOUT) do
  puts 'This will never be seen'
end

puts 'But this will'

This method is not thread-safe.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 46
def silence_stream(stream)
  old_stream = stream.dup
  stream.reopen(RbConfig::CONFIG['host_os'] =~ /mswin|mingw/ ? 'NUL:' : '/dev/null')
  stream.sync = true
  yield
ensure
  stream.reopen(old_stream)
  old_stream.close
end
silence_warnings()

Sets $VERBOSE to nil for the duration of the block and back to its original value afterwards.

silence_warnings do
  value = noisy_call # no warning voiced
end

noisy_call # warning voiced
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 13
def silence_warnings
  with_warnings(nil) { yield }
end
suppress(*exception_classes)

Blocks and ignores any exception passed as argument if raised within the block.

suppress(ZeroDivisionError) do
  1/0
  puts 'This code is NOT reached'
end

puts 'This code gets executed and nothing related to ZeroDivisionError was seen'
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 64
def suppress(*exception_classes)
  yield
rescue *exception_classes
end
with_warnings(flag)

Sets $VERBOSE for the duration of the block and back to its original value afterwards.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/kernel/reporting.rb, line 25
def with_warnings(flag)
  old_verbose, $VERBOSE = $VERBOSE, flag
  yield
ensure
  $VERBOSE = old_verbose
end
