Along the same lines as @tiegz's protip, mine lets you easily bring up an object in
less so you can move around the object easily and most importantly search for things:
Just add this to your
def less(x) IO.popen( 'less -', 'w') do |io| io.puts x.to_yaml end end
Then in an IRB session (this one is a rails console session), do something like this:
irb(main):003:0> less User.all
And you'll have your users, in YAML, in less.
