attr_bool_accessor Gem Version Build Status Coverage Status

attr_bool_accessor is a gem for adding boolean style attributes to classes.

For example:

  class User
    battr_accessor :enabled
  end

  u = User.new
  u.enabled?

Installation

Just like any other gem. Just add

gem "attr_bool_accessor"

to your Gemfile or run

gem install attr_bool_accessor

Usage

For basic usage it can be used similarly to an attr_accessor

  class User
    battr_accessor :enabled
  end

Which provides some basic accessor methods:

  u = User.new
  u.enabled?         # => false
  u.enabled!         # set it to true
  u.enabled?         # => true
  u.enabled = false  # set it to a value
  u.enabled?         # => false

The query method attribute? always returns a true or false value.
The bang method (attribute!) sets the attribute to true.
The writer method (attribute=) allows you to set the attribute. Values will be converted to boolean.

You can provide multiple attribute names, use strings and use names that include a trailing question mark

  class User
    battr_accessor :first, :second, 'third', :fourth?
  end

You can also use attr_boolean as an alias for battr_accessor

  class User
    attr_boolean :enabled
  end
Options

The following options are accepted:

default: sets the default (initial) value for the attribute (false by default)

bang: Set to false to disable the bang (attribute!) method (true by default)

writer: Set to false to disable the writer (attribute=) method (by default the writer is enabled if the bang method is enabled)

reader: Set to true to disable the reader (attribute) method (this is enabled if the raw option is set)

raw: Enables raw mode. This makes a few changes.
Default and assigned values are stored internally in the value provided and not converted to boolean values
A reader method is added that allows you to read the raw value.
The query method will always return a boolean.

Examples
  class User
   battr_accessor :enabled, default: true, writer: false
  end

  class Account
   battr_accessor :state, default: 3, raw: true
  end

  a = Account.new
  a.state       # => 3
  a.state?      # => true
  a.state = nil
  a.state       # => nil
  a.state?      # => false
