Enable history in irb and rails console

On your Mac, add following lines in ~/.irbrc

require 'irb/ext/save-history'

#History configuration

IRB.conf[:SAVE_HISTORY] = 1000

This will enable irb history which will let you access previous commands with up/down keys

The actual history resides under ~/.irb_history
