A semantic grep-like tool for Ruby. You can use coypond to search through ruby code for class, module, or method definitions.
Search using raw string or regular expression
Narrow search to only module, classes, methods or any combination
Search through files, directories, or specify a locally installed gem (using -g option)
From the command line:
$ gem install coypond
or, in your Gemfile
If you're using Ruby 1.8.7, you must also install ripper:
$ gem install ripper
To search for methods, classes or modules named foo in the current directory:
$ coypond foo .
Coypond uses the fully qualified name to index types, so to search the current directory for the initialize method in the Bar class under the Foo module:
$ coypond "Foo::Bar#initialize" .
You can also specify a gem for Coypond to search through using the -g option (Coypond will try to find gems in the Ruby load path):
$ coypond "Thumbnail#initialize" -g paperclip
Contributing to coypond
Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
Fork the project
Start a feature/bugfix branch
Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
