Is there a ruby equivalent of ColdFusions cfdump tag.
which can dump any object as a html formatted output.
I want to use this to be able to dump any object into an email html body.
I know there is Pretty Print and other gems out there that output colour coded well formatted strings to the console, but I want to be able to generate a html string, dumping out the entire data type I need.
There's a CodeRay colorizer.
CodeRay.scan("5.times do\n puts 'Hello, world!'\nend", :ruby). div(:line_numbers => :table)
I use it to highlight JSON snippets in my wiki, so if you pretty print objects to JSON and then pass it through coderay, it'll certainly work.
