Powerpack

Powerpack offers some useful extensions to the standard Ruby classes (kind of like ActiveSupport, but less ambitious and more modular).

The project has several design goals:

  • minimalistic - we don't add every possible extensions, we focus only on the stuff that are commonly requested and would be often useful in practice
  • modular - all extensions can be loaded individually (often they are just individual methods)
  • safe - you can't end up accidentally overriding some existing method definition with Powerpack's extensions

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile (if you're using bundler, that is):

gem 'powerpack'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install powerpack
