About byebug

Byebug is a Ruby debugger. It's implemented using the TracePoint C API for execution control and the Debug Inspector C API for call stack navigation. The core component provides support that front-ends can build on. It provides breakpoint handling and bindings for stack frames among other things and it comes with an easy to use command line interface.

Byebug permits the ability to understand what is going on inside a Ruby program while it executes and offers many of the typical ebugging features like:

  • Stepping, which is running your program one line at a time
  • Breaking, which is pausing the program at some event or specified instruction, to examine the current state
  • Evaluating
  • Tracking

Tidelift works directly with the maintainer of Byebig, David Rodriguez, to offer maintenance, code improvement, license verification, and security updates so you can use Byebug for debugging your app.

We spoke with Byebug maintainer, David, about how he got involved with the project.

Byebug is avaible via rubygems.
