TemplateParams

Runtime type-check for template preconditions, including instance variables and local variables. Think of this as the method signature of a template, as the documentation.

Installation

  1. Add it to your Gemfile and run bundle.

    gem 'template_params'
  2. If you're using rails, add a helper method.

    # app/helpers/application_helper.rb
    def template_param(*args, &block)
      ::TemplateParams::Assertion.assert(*args, &block)
    end

If you're not using rails, let me know how you install it, and I'll put that here.

Usage

# Assert `poll` is defined. If not, raises an `ArgumentError` (the "arguments"
# of the template are invalid).
template_param { poll }

# Assert `@course` is defined. Meaningless because instance variables are
# always defined.
template_param { @course }

# Assert `poll.is_a?(::Poll)`. If not, raises a `TypeError`.
template_param(::Poll) { poll }

# Assert `@course.is_a?(::Course)`
template_param(::Course) { @course }

# Assert `@course` is either a `::Course` or `nil`
template_param(::Course, allow_nil: true) { @course }

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run bundle exec rspec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
