Awrence

Gem Version CI

Have you ever needed to automatically convert Rubyish snake_case to JSON-style camelBack or CamelCase hash keys?

Awrence to the rescue!

This gem recursively converts all snake_case keys in a hash structure to camelBack or CamelCase.

Installation

Add this to your Gemfile:

gem "awrence"

Or install it yourself as:

gem install awrence

Usage

my_hash = {"first_key" => 1, "foo_bars" => [{"baz_baz" => "value"}, {"blah_blah" => "value"}]}
camel_hash = my_hash.to_camel_keys
# => {"FirstKey" => 1, "FooBars" => [{"BazBaz" => "value"}, {"BlahBlah" => "value"}]}

# OR

camel_hash = my_hash.to_camelback_keys
# => {"firstKey" => 1, "fooBars" => [{"bazBaz" => "value"}, {"blahBlah" => "value"}]}

Awrence works on either string keys or symbolized keys. It has no dependencies, as it has its own camelize method lifted out of ActiveSupport.

Acronyms

You can set acronyms that Awrence will now check against when converting the keys.

Awrence.acronyms = { "url" => "URL", "id" => "ID" }

my_hash = { "user_url" => "http://a.com", "user_id" => 2 }
camel_hash = my_hash.to_camel_keys
# => { "UserURL" => "http://a.com", "UserID" => 2 }

camel_hash = my_hash.to_camelback_keys
# => { "userURL" => "http://a.com", "userID" => 2 }

The acronym will be ignored when it's the first word and to_camelback_keys is called.

Awrence.acronyms = { "id" => "ID" }

my_hash = { "id" => 2 }
camel_hash = my_hash.to_camel_keys
# => { "ID" => 2 }

camel_hash = my_hash.to_camelback_keys
# => { "id" => 2 }

Limitations

  • There is no Hash#to_camel_keys! form.

Going the other way

If you've already got CamelCase and need to snake_case it, you are encouraged to try the Plissken gem.
