NOTE: I am in the process of extracting dependency injection features from Currently, the only feature of this library is memoization. I am not dumb or inexperienced. I'm just not done yet.

Morphine is a lightweight dependency injection framework for Ruby. It uses a simple Ruby DSL to ease the pain of wiring your dependencies together.


Create a container for your dependencies and include the Morphine module.

class Application
  include Morphine

  register :track_service do, config.tracking_queue)

  register :track_processor do, config.tracking_queue)


  register :kestrel_client do
    c = config['kestrel'].dup'servers'), c.symbolize_keys)

  register :blocking_kestrel_client do

Create an instance of your container, and use that to load your dependencies

$app =

get '/track.gif' do

But I don't need dependency injection in Ruby!

Many argue that you don't need dependency injection in dynamic languages like Ruby. What they are really saying is you don't need a complicated dependency injection framework, and they're right.

That's why Morphine is an extremely simple library.
