glob

Tests Code Climate Gem Gem

Create a list of hash paths that match a given pattern. You can also generate a hash with only the matching paths.

Installation

gem install glob

Or add the following line to your project's Gemfile:

gem "glob"

Usage

There are two types of paths: include and exclude.

  • The include path adds that node to the new hash.
  • The exclude path is the one started by !, and will prevent that path from being added.

Rules may also have groups. Let's say you want to target en.* and pt.*; you case set {en,pt}.* rather than having two separate rules.

The latest rules have more precedence; that means that if you have the rule *.messages.*, then add a following rule as !*.messages.bye, all *.messages.* but *.messages.bye will be included.

glob = Glob.new(
  site: {
    settings: {
      name: "Site name",
      url: "https://example.com"
    }
  },
  user: {
    settings: {
      name: "User name"
    }
  }
)

glob << "*.settings.*"

glob.paths
#=> ["site.settings.name", "site.settings.url", "user.settings.name"]

glob.to_h
#=> {
#=>   site: {
#=>     settings: {
#=>       name: "Site name"
#=>     }
#=>   },
#=>   user: {
#=>     settings: {
#=>       name: "User name"
#=>     }
#=>   }
#=> }

Notice that the return result will have symbolized keys.

If the contains dots, then the result will use \\. as the escape sequence. Similarly, you need to escape keys with dots when filtering results.

glob = Glob.new(
  formats: {
    ".txt" => "Text",
    ".json" => "JSON",
    ".rb" => "Ruby"
  }
)

glob << "*"

glob.paths
#=> ["formats.\\.json", "formats.\\.rb", "formats.\\.txt"]

glob.to_h
#=> {:formats=>{:".json"=>"JSON", :".rb"=>"Ruby", :".txt"=>"Text"}}

# Remove all existing matchers
glob.matchers.clear

glob << "formats.\\.rb"

glob.paths
#=> ["formats.\\.rb"]

glob.to_h
#=> {:formats=>{:".rb"=>"Ruby"}}
