Nice idea, never finished.

conf

Simple configuration that supports inheritance.

Example

Conf.define(:parent) do
  properties.like.syntax = :nice

  single "pair"

  nested {
    ruby {
      blocks true
    }
  }
end

Conf.define(:child, :parent) do
  nested {
    ruby {
      blocks false
    }
  }
end

c = Conf.get(:child)
c.nested.ruby.blocks     #=> false
c.single                 #=> "pair"
c.properties.like.syntax #=> :nice

# can't modify locked config
c.nested.ruby.block true   #=> InvalidStateError 

# unlock it first
c.unlocked do
  nested.ruby.block true
end

c.nested.ruby.block       #=> true

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.
