Kawaii (Japanese for cute) is a web based console for Ruby on Rails applications.
It is designed for people who spend all day with a script/console window open, typing in pieces of code and trying to analyze incredibly long strings for any kind of useful output.
If you type in code that returns data sets, Kawaii will nicely format them in scrollable types. You can also easily configure your own Kawaii views for your own classes.
It also supports saving snippets either locally into a table using ActiveRecord, or remotely into an Amazon S3 bucket, so you can share them across instances of your application.
