Build Status

KV is a simple library that parses a string of key=value sets into a Hash.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'kv'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install kv


require 'kv'

KV.parse('foo=bar a=b')
# => {"foo"=>"bar", "a"=>"b"}

It also handles integers and floats:

KV.parse('a=1 b=2.5123 c=foo')
# => {"a"=>1, "b"=>2.5123, "c"=>"foo"}

To unparse a Hash to a String:

KV.unparse(a: 1)
# => "a=1"
