Modularize

Dynamically create Ruby module hierarchies

Modulize.create('Animals::Cats::Bombay')

is the equivelent to:

module Animals
  module Cats
    module Bombay
    end
  end
end

But Why?

In RestPack, I want to create some modules at load time so that I don't need to nest class definitions in module namespaces. I want to be able to do this:

module Commands::Groups::Invitation
  class Create
    ..
  end
end

instead of this:

module Commands
  module Groups
    module Invitation
      class Create
        ..
      end
    end
  end
end
