BindingNinja

Gem Version Build Status

This is method wrapper for passing binding of method caller implcitly. And this is lightweight alternative of binding_of_caller

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'binding_ninja'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install binding_ninja

Supported Ruby Implementations

  • MRI
  • JRuby-9.2.6.0 or later
    • JRuby-9.2.6.0 cannot use this with Refinements
    • JRuby-9.2.7.0 is OK

Usage

class Foo
  extend BindingNinja

  def foo(binding, arg1, arg2)
    p binding
    p arg1
    p arg2
  end
  auto_inject_binding :foo

  def foo2(binding, arg1, arg2)
    p binding
    p arg1
    p arg2
  end
  auto_inject_binding :foo2, if: ENV["ENABLE_BINDING_NINJA"]
  # or
  auto_inject_binding :foo2, if: ->(obj) { obj.enable_auto_inject_binding? }
  # or
  auto_inject_binding :foo2, if: :enable_auto_inject_binding?

  def enable_auto_inject_binding?
    true
  end
end

Foo.new.foo(1, 2) 
# => <Binding of toplevel>
# => 1
# => 2

# if ENABLE_BINDING_NINJA environment variable is nil or false,
# binding arguments is nil.
Foo.new.foo2(1, 2) 
# => nil
# => 1
# => 2

:if option can accept Proc object and Symbol object. If option accepts a proc or symbol, uses result of evaluating the proc or method named by the symbol.
