I hope you are familiar with pry, if not here is how pry defienes itself
Pry is a powerful alternative to the standard IRB shell for Ruby. It is written from scratch to provide a number of advanced features
Please don't misunderstand  this blog post is not an introduction about pry but rather this will tell you how you can set pry as the default irb

Install pry

Create a .irbrc file in the home directory if you don't have any

Append the following snippet into irbrc

Thats it. Now try irb on command line and you will enter into pry prompt
