Module: YARD::Registry

Extended by:
Enumerable
Defined in:
lib/yard/registry.rb

Overview

The Registry is the centralized data store for all CodeObjects created during parsing. The storage is a key value store with the object's path (see CodeObjects::Base#path) as the key and the object itself as the value. Object paths must be unique to be stored in the Registry. All lookups for objects are done on the singleton Registry instance using the Registry.at or Registry.resolve methods.

Saving / Loading a Registry

The registry is saved to a “yardoc file” (actually a directory), which can be loaded back to perform any lookups. See Registry.load! and Registry.save for information on saving and loading of a yardoc file.

Threading Notes

The registry class is a singleton class that is accessed directly in many places across YARD. To mitigate threading issues, YARD (0.6.5+) makes the Registry thread local. This means all access to a registry for a specific object set must occur in the originating thread.

Examples:

Loading the Registry

Registry.load!('/path/to/yardocfile') # loads all objects into memory
Registry.at('YARD::CodeObjects::Base').docstring
# => "+Base+ is the superclass of all code objects ..."

Getting an object by a specific path

Registry.at('YARD::CodeObjects::Base#docstring')

Performing a lookup on a method anywhere in the inheritance tree

Registry.resolve(P('YARD::CodeObjects::Base'), '#docstring', true)

Class Attribute Details

.po_dirString

Gets/sets the directory that has LANG.po files

Returns:

  • (String)

    the directory that has .po files

def po_dir
  @po_dir
end

.single_object_dbBoolean?

Note:

Setting this attribute to nil will offload the decision to the storage adapter.

Whether or not the Registry storage should load everything into a single object database (for disk efficiency), or spread them out (for load time efficiency).

Returns:

  • (Boolean, nil)

    if this value is set to nil, the storage adapter will decide how to store the data.

.load(files = [], reparse = false) ⇒ Registry

Loads the registry and/or parses a list of files

Examples:

Registry.load(['a', 'b'], true)

Parameters:

  • files (String, Array) (defaults to: [])

    if files is an Array, it should represent a list of files that YARD should parse into the registry. If reload is set to false and the yardoc file already exists, these files are skipped. If files is a String, it should represent the yardoc file to load into the registry.

  • reparse (Boolean) (defaults to: false)

    if reparse is false and a yardoc file already exists, any files passed in will be ignored.

Returns:

  • (Registry)

    the registry object (for chaining)

Raises:

def register(object)
  return if object.is_a?(CodeObjects::Proxy)
  thread_local_store[object.path] = object
end

.resolve(namespace, name, inheritance = false, proxy_fallback = false, type = nil) ⇒ CodeObjects::Base, ...

Attempts to find an object by name starting at namespace, performing a lookup similar to Ruby's method of resolving a constant in a namespace.

Examples:

Looks for instance method #reverse starting from A::B::C

Registry.resolve(P("A::B::C"), "#reverse")

Looks for a constant in the root namespace

Registry.resolve(nil, 'CONSTANT')

Looks for a class method respecting the inheritance tree

Registry.resolve(myclass, 'mymethod', true)

Looks for a constant but returns a proxy if not found

Registry.resolve(P('A::B::C'), 'D', false, true) # => #<yardoc proxy A::B::C::D>

Looks for a complex path from a namespace

Registry.resolve(P('A::B'), 'B::D') # => #<yardoc class A::B::D>

Parameters:

  • namespace (CodeObjects::NamespaceObject, nil)

    the starting namespace (module or class). If nil or :root, starts from the root object.

  • name (String, Symbol)

    the name (or complex path) to look for from namespace.

  • inheritance (Boolean) (defaults to: false)

    Follows inheritance chain (mixins, superclass) when performing name resolution if set to true.

  • proxy_fallback (Boolean) (defaults to: false)

    If true, returns a proxy representing the unresolved path (namespace + name) if no object is found.

  • type (Symbol, nil) (defaults to: nil)

    the CodeObjects::Base#type that the resolved object must be equal to. No type checking if nil.

Returns:

  • (CodeObjects::Base)

    the object if it is found

  • (CodeObjects::Proxy)

    a Proxy representing the object if proxy_fallback is true.

  • (nil)

    if proxy_fallback is false and no object was found.
