Instance Method Details

#debug(object) ⇒ Object

Returns a YAML representation of object wrapped with <pre> and </pre>. If the object cannot be converted to YAML using to_yaml, inspect will be called instead. Useful for inspecting an object at the time of rendering.

@user = User.new({ username: 'testing', password: 'xyz', age: 42})
debug(@user)
# =>
<pre class='debug_dump'>--- !ruby/object:User
attributes:
  updated_at:
  username: testing
  age: 42
  password: xyz
  created_at:
</pre>
