A DSL for pattern matching over object in Ruby.
What does it do? It's a conditional clause based on the object interface. It also allows you do make "multi-assignment".
object = Struct.new(:method1, :method2).new object.method1 = 'something' object.method2 = 'something else' with object do like method1: m1, method2: m2 do puts m1 # 'something' puts m2 # 'something else' end end
object = Struct.new(:a_method).new object.a_method = 'something' with object do like this_method_does_not_exist: x do fail 'it will not reach here' end like a_method: x do puts x # 'something' end end
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install ataulfo
If you want to play around, clone the project, run the specs and have fun.
Since this is really tiny and more a "Proof of Concept" than something I would use in production code, I'm not planning to actively work on it. But if you need some help, send me an e-mail: ronie.uliana at gmail. I'll be happy to help you.
