README.md

Sane tools for Ruby without monkey-patching. This is basically code usually copy from one project to another.

Goal of this library is to be lightweight and unobtrusive, so you don't have to feel guilty for using it. Mixins are lazy-loaded.

Included Tools

Tool::Autoloader

Sets up autoload directives for nested constants. Has the advantage of setting these up when included instead of hooking into const_missing, like ActiveSupport does. The means it is fast, transparent, and does not alter constant lookup in any way.

module Foo
  include Tool::Autoloader
end

If you don't want to include the module, use setup:

Tool::Autoloader.setup Foo

Tool::Lock

Adds a synchronize method that behaves like Rubinius.synchronize(self), i.e. recursively going through the lock will not result in a deadlock:

class Foo
  include Tool::Lock

  def recursive_fun(i = 0)
    return i if i == 5
    # THIS NEEDS TO BE THREAD-SAFE!!!
    synchronize { recursive_fun(i + 1) }
  end
end

It will use Rubinius.synchronize when on Rubinius.

Tool.set

Simplified version of Sinatra's set:

class Foo
  Tool.set(self, :foo, :foo)
end

class Bar < Foo
end

Bar.foo # => :foo

Bar.foo = :bar
Bar.foo # => :bar

Foo.foo # => :foo
