Local One adds Object#with and Kernel.let to help you use fewer local variables.


%w{ doug bob }.with do |a|
  assert_equal "doug and bob", a.join(' and ')

assert_equal 'abcdef', let(:a=>'abc', :b=>'def'){ [a, b].join }

Does it work on my version of Ruby?

It has been tested on 1.8.6, 1.8.7, and 1.9.1 successfully. I'm having jruby + rvm problems right now, so not sure there. Can't get jeweler or bundler installed on macruby + jvm. Verdict: probably :)

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.
