Cloud9 Rails Console display makes it unusable

chuckblake asked in General


I am using Cloud9 for a Rails project and everything works fine except the Rails Console.

The display get messed up because of the autocomplete popup moves the active line around the screen and it ends up overlapping with other text on the screen. I tried other browsers and I am getting the same issue.

Any ideas on how to turn off the autocomplete or fix the display issues?



You should be able ot put this in ~/.irbrc


Or you can open the rails console / irb with --noautocomplete

rails console --noautocomplete
irb --noautocomplete

perfect, thanks!
