OpenStruct subclass that returns nested hash attributes as RecursiveOpenStructs

branch: master
README.rdoc

recursive-open-struct

OpenStruct subclass that returns nested hash attributes as RecursiveOpenStructs.

It allows for hashes within hashes to be called in a chain of methods:

ros = RecursiveOpenStruct.new( { :fooa => { :foob => 'fooc' } } )

ros.fooa.foob # => 'fooc'

Also, if needed, nested hashes can still be accessed as hashes:

ros.fooa_as_a_hash # { :foob => 'fooc' }

RecursiveOpenStruct can also optionally recurse across arrays, although you have to explicitly enable it:

h = { :somearr => [ { :name => 'a'}, { :name => 'b' } ] }

ros = RecursiveOpenStruct.new(h, :recurse_over_arrays => true )

ros.somarr[0].name # => 'a'
ros.somarr[1].name # => 'b'

Installation

Available as a gem in rubygems, the default gem repository.

If you use bundler, just throw that in your gemfile :

gem 'recursive-open-struct'

You may also install the gem manually :

gem install recursive-open-struct

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
