Basepath

Do you feel pain every time you have to dick around with relative paths?

$: << File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/lib"
require Pathname.new(__FILE__).dirname.join('../foo/bar').to_s

Oh, you don't. Ok then. You're done reading.

Usage

Add an empty .base file to the root of your project.

When you require 'basepath', it'll set BASE_PATH to a Pathname object with the absolute path of the directory containing .base.

Bonus

You can use the .base file to:

  • add paths to $LOAD_PATH,
  • add a default list of files to be required,
  • initialize other Pathname constants.

Paths are specified relative to BASE_PATH.

Example

A fully specified .base file:

[load_paths]
vendor/*/lib
lib

[requires]
yaml
active_support

[consts]
EXAMPLES_PATH = etc/examples
