Ruby module for automatic file require based on convention :)
Okey, before you even think about use this gem, let's say this gem only for lazy ones...
the basic idea is to have an easy to use relative require system and a namespace based Constant loading logic
The fun part is , that this stuffs can be used in gems (modules), because it do not depend on the Dir.pwd or any kind of absolute path or the File expand_path tricks that based on the application position.
The end goal is to make an easy ruby file loader for apps and gems.
load relative directory (not based on Dir.pwd but the caller files position) if you pass multiple string as argument it will be joined by file separator that the OS use
Manual loading folders
require 'loader' # load all ruby file that was not loaded already # from that relative folder require_relative_directory "folder_name" # for recursive use try the following require_relative_directory_r "folder_name/path/etc"
require 'loader' Loader.autoload
optionally you can tell the project root folder if you work with in a gem.
require 'loader' Loader.autoload(File.dirname(__FILE__))
If you like the basic idea that the app should not do any kind of Eager Load and become slow, you can use the constant based autoload function
