Deep Struct

A library to access nested hashes and arrays in an object oriented way.

Requires Ruby 1.9.3 or higher

Examples

data = [
  { one: 1, two: 2 },
  { "array": [ "string", "another"] },
  { "nested": [ { "name" => "Sue" } ] },
]

deep_struct = DeepStruct.from_data(data)

deep_struct[0].one               # => 1
deep_struct[0].two               # => 2
deep_struct[1].array             # => ["string", "another"]
deep_struct[2].nested.first.name # => "Sue"

Note that DeepStruct does its best to return nested DeepStruct objects, even when accessed through contained arrays. It accomplishes this by returning DeepStruct::Array or DeepStruct::Hash objects.

Reading from files

DeepStruct can also load data files from the filesystem:

DeepStruct.from_file("./data.json")
DeepStruct.from_file("./data.yaml")

Installing

# Gemfile
gem "deep_struct"
