I'm a web developer with base at Buenos Aires, Argetina, and this is a little place to publish a little bit about what I'm wasting most of my time during the week. Don't expect nothing particularly good.

So I was a little bored and I decided to play a bit with the output of rails's rake task for generating information about the configured routes. The result was the color_routes gem.

Using some ANSI codes I changed the output from the usable but dull white and black output to something more colorful and fun :).

Example output

Installing it is quite simple. On your Gemfile, add this line:

  gem "color_routes"

That's it! now, after running:


you should be able to run this command:

  rake color_routes

to get the new colorful output.
