Dependo is a very simple Dependency Injection framework for Ruby. Some say you don't need dependency injection when you're using Ruby. Maybe they're right, but I've come across some places where I need it.
For example, in my apps using Sinatra and Sequel, I need to be able to log, using a single Logger instance, from both my Sinatra app and from within my Sequel models. I'm not about to pass that Logger around as a parameter anywhere, and I don't want to instantiate it in every class that needs to log.
So, injecting the Logger is the easiest, best solution.
Dependo doesn't depend on anything. In test, it relies on rspec and either rcov (Ruby 1.8) or simplecov (Ruby 1.9).
Install the gem:
gem install dependo-(version).gem
Running the tests:
Building the gem:
Install gem with Rake:
Dependo::Registry[:log] = Logger.new(STDOUT)
This makes it easy to use your injected dependencies as instance methods:
class MyThing include Dependo::Mixin end thing = MyThing.new thing.log.info "I'm logging!"
This makes it easy to use your injected dependencies as class methods:
class MyThing extend Dependo::Mixin end MyThing.log.info "I'm logging!"
