Julia Builder

Gem Version Build Status Code Climate Test Coverage

Julia helps you out to create flexible builders to easily export your queries to csv (for now).

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'julia_builder'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install julia_builder

For non rails projects

require 'julia'

Usage

  1. Create your own builder class, inherit from Julia::Builder and configure your csv columns.

    class UserCsv < Julia::Builder
      # specify column's header and value
      column 'Birthday', :dob
      # header equals 'Birthday' and the value will be on `user.dbo`
    
      # when header and value are the same, no need to duplicate it.
      column :name
      # header equals 'name', value will be `user.name`
    
      # specify many columns at once
      columns :name, :lastname, :dob
    
      # when you need to do some extra work on the value you can pass a proc.
      column 'Full name', -> { "#{ name.capitalize } #{ last_name.capitalize }" }
    
      # or you can pass a block
      column 'Type' do |user|
        user.class.name
      end
    
      # include your own mixins
      include ActionView::Helpers::DateHelper
    
      column 'age' do |c|
        time_ago_in_words c.dob
      end
    end
  2. Now you can use your builder to generate your csv out of a query like:

    users = User.all
    UserCsv.build(users)
    
    # or
    
    UserCsv.build(users, <csv options>)

    Csv options could be anything CSV::new understands, but they are optional.

  3. Enjoy

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
