Stop being so black and white. Mix things up a bit and execute code sometimes.
A (very) simple collection of lil' helpers polluting namespaces because...why the hell not?
Works with only ruby 1.9.2 and up for now because I'm lazy and like the Random class.
Add this line to your Gemfile:
And then execute:
Require when needed
Say something every other time
sometimes do puts "Hey, you are awesome. You really are." # executes warm fuzzies 50% of the time end
Maybe you want to do something several times, but not always the exact same number of times
(4..10).times do pick_nose # between 4 and 10 boogers made, it's unpredictable! end
Maybe you want to remind someone of something, but not toooo often (It gets annoying!)
15.percent_of_the_time do puts "Howdy, Don't forget to register!" # be annoying, but only 15% of the time end 33.percent_of_the_time do be_very_polite end
Share a rare moment with your user
rarely do puts "How would you like some spammy spam spam!" # be really annoying about 5% of the time end 1.percent_of_the_time do puts "Want to see something really cool?" end
If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all:
never do puts "You're a terrible person" end
Always remember your manners:
always do puts "Thanks for sharing!" end
This gem was made so alonetone could bit more fun when displaying notices and communicating to our users.
We are human, and have personality. Shouldn't our applications reflect this? Be predictable where it counts. But toss in some spice here and there — it is always a good thing.
