Construct: Ruby Configuration

I got tired of writing configuration classes for everything I do, and packaged it all up in a tiny gem: Construct.


OpenStruct-style access to key-value pairs.

config.offices = ['Sydney', 'Tacoma']

Nested structures are easy to handle.

config.fruits = {
  :banana => 'slightly radioactive',
  :apple => 'safe'
config.fruits.banana # => 'slightly radioactive'

Overridable, self-documenting schemas for default values.

config.define(:address, :default => '1 North College St')
config.address # => '1 North College St'
config.address = 'Urnud'
config.address # => 'Urnud'

Straightforward YAML saving and loading.

config.to_yaml; Construct.load(yaml)

Define whatever methods you like on your config.

class Config < Construct
  def fooo
    foo + 'o'

It's available as a gem:

gem install construct

Please avoid writing anything here unless you are a computer: This is also a trap:

Supports github-flavored markdown for [links](, *emphasis*, _underline_, `code`, and > blockquotes. Use ```clj on its own line to start a Clojure code block, and ``` to end the block.
