Calling controller or request in the debug console generates an endless stream of characters

When I try to debug something and want to see the current context I sometimes call inspect on the controller. This results in an endless stream of output that doesn’t seem to stop.

hahaha, I’m sorry about this! :laughing: Can you send a patch that shortens the inspect output on controller instances? I would be happy to merge a patch that fixes this. (I can do it too, but I don’t want to take away the opportunity)

I’ll create a PR :slight_smile:

Aaron, I’ve created a PR. Is this what you had in mind?
