enterprise

DESCRIPTION:

Wish you could write your Ruby in XML? Has the fact that Ruby is not “enterprise” got you down? Do you feel like your Ruby code could be made to be more “scalable”? Well look no further my friend. You've found the enterprise gem. Once you install this gem, you too can make Rails scale, Ruby faster, your code more attractive, and have more XML in your life.

I'm sure you're asking yourself, “how can the enterprise gem promise so much?”. Well the answer is easy, through the magic of XML! The enterprise gem allows you to write your Ruby code in XML, therefore making your Ruby and Rails code scale. Benefits of writing your code in XML include:

  • It's easy to read!

  • It scales!

  • Cross platform

  • TRANSFORM! your code using XSLT!

  • Search your AST with XPath or CSS!

The enterprise gem even comes with a handy “enterprise” binary to help you start converting your existing legacy Ruby code in to scaleable, easy to read XML files. Let's start getting rid of that nasty Ruby code and replacing it with XML today!

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • require files completely written in XML

  • convert existing legacy ruby code to XML

SYNOPSIS:

Let's say you have some legacy Ruby code that looks like this:

class Foo
  def hello_world
    "bar"
  end
end

puts Foo.new.hello_world

Let's convert that crappy ruby code to XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<s>
  <block type="Symbol" value="block"/>
  <s>
    <class type="Symbol" value="class"/>
    <Foo type="Symbol" value="Foo"/>
    <special type="NilClass" value=""/>
    <s>
      <scope type="Symbol" value="scope"/>
      <s>
        <defn type="Symbol" value="defn"/>
        <special type="Symbol" value="hello_world"/>
        <s>
          <args type="Symbol" value="args"/>
        </s>
        <s>
          <scope type="Symbol" value="scope"/>
          <s>
            <block type="Symbol" value="block"/>
            <s>
              <str type="Symbol" value="str"/>
              <bar type="String" value="bar"/>
            </s>
          </s>
        </s>
      </s>
    </s>
  </s>
  <s>
    <call type="Symbol" value="call"/>
    <special type="NilClass" value=""/>
    <puts type="Symbol" value="puts"/>
    <s>
      <arglist type="Symbol" value="arglist"/>
      <s>
        <call type="Symbol" value="call"/>
        <s>
          <call type="Symbol" value="call"/>
          <s>
            <const type="Symbol" value="const"/>
            <Foo type="Symbol" value="Foo"/>
          </s>
          <new type="Symbol" value="new"/>
          <s>
            <arglist type="Symbol" value="arglist"/>
          </s>
        </s>
        <special type="Symbol" value="hello_world"/>
        <s>
          <arglist type="Symbol" value="arglist"/>
        </s>
      </s>
    </s>
  </s>
</s>

Now, simply save that XML file out to “test.xml”. With the enterprise gem, to execute this xml file, we just do:

$ enterprise_ruby test.xml

enterprise lets you do a require on pure xml files too. We can load the test.xml file like so:

require 'rubygems'
require 'enterprise'
require 'test'

The final feature is an enterprise migration assistant. To migrate an entire project to be enterprise, just do this:

$ enterprise some_directory

To make a single file enterprise, just give it the filename:

$ enterprise some_file.rb

I'm sure you're asking yourself, “how much does this enterprise solution cost me?”. Well, like any good enterprise system, it is insanely expensive. This gem will cost you eleventy billion dollars payable to me, now.
