Identitee Gem Version Build Status Code Climate Coverage Status

Provides methods for building and retrieving instances of a class. Identify is intended to replace persisting data that is tightly tied to domain logic.

Many times you might see a database structure that will always remain static until the codebase changes. This is a headache to seed the proper data for the objects to work. Instead use identify to write these classes in code.

Likewise, many classes may be constructed that do the same thing... just a little bit differently. Like a use case. Identitee allows easy retrieval of data.

Finding

Find an identifiable through the find_identifiable (aliased also to find) class method. (See the Basic Example)

class Activity
  include Identitee

  attr_reader :title

  def titled title
    @title = title
  end
end

Activity.identify :new_activity do
  titled "Created something new"
end

Activity.find_identifiable(:new_activity).title # => "Created something new"
Activity.find(:new_activity).title # => "Created something new"

Loading identifiables

Identitee will try to autoload the identifiables if it doesn't already know about them. By default it will use the pluralize class_name of the identifiable from the folder that the source file is in. The load path can explicitly be set with the set_identitee_root method call.

class LazyLoadingTest
  include Identitee

  attr_accessor :successful

  set_identitee_root File.expand_path("../lazy_loading_tests/", __FILE__)

  def initialize
    @successful = false
  end

  def successful?
    @successful
  end
end

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'identitee'

And then execute:

Or install it yourself as:
