anyone remember what the conversation on irc was that made me write http://bit.ly/1A19LU6

@fkchang the more I think about it, the more I prefer opal-irb being “in-browser” rather than built into chrome dev tools
the only slight thought it about how to debug web apps running on iOS
which is 99% of my time these days

@fkchang :+1: on opal-irb -- finally got around to trying it out. Sent in a PR for a couple of Rails instruction tweaks. Otherwise, great stuff. I also vote to keep it in browser, at least as an option, as I do all my dev work in Safari on OS X not Chrome.

@adambeynon @jaredcwhite unless I can get around the json_stringify issue I had w/Chrome, I'm pretty much dropping it. I have an idea for a cheat that might work, but that's my last ditch effort. Otherwise, I'm inspired to add some cool stuff and refactor opal-irb. I'll probably start w/autocompletion, the hardest part is actually how to display/pick the choices (due partly to my meager CSS skills), I already know how I'll populate entries for the 1st go
then I'll probably do the create if missing on methods
@jaredcwhite merged, thx

@fkchang I will try and offer some commits etc soon, as I need a way for remote debugging, i.e. an opal-irb session talking to a remote iOS device
so some sort of rails/server side part to proxy the session

@adambeynon cool. I look forward to it. I ultimately thought as when I build opal-inspector for real that I could use it for backend code as well, so your proxy ideas will be pertinent

:+1: much better than my current approach of trying to write compiled opal into the web inspector ;)

Any hints on how to build static opal app with react.rb? It complains it can’t find react when doing rake build
I’d also like to figure out why I couldn’t do keypresses better with opal-jquery or react.rb natively, but worked around that with raw js for now and adding @elia’s requested screenshot, and maybe a playable demo on github pages if I can get this to build :-)

Well, I added screenshots in any case @elia hopefully playable in browser coming soon :-)

He's actually trolling me right now. We were co-workers previously and I just noticed that he was in here.
