Module: Hashie::Extensions::IndifferentAccess

Defined in:
lib/hashie/extensions/indifferent_access.rb

Overview

IndifferentAccess gives you the ability to not care whether your hash has string or symbol keys. Made famous in Rails for accessing query and POST parameters, this is a handy tool for making sure your hash has maximum utility.

One unique feature of this mixin is that it will recursively inject itself into sub-hash instances without modifying the actual class of the sub-hash.

Examples:

class MyHash < Hash
  include Hashie::Extensions::MergeInitializer
  include Hashie::Extensions::IndifferentAccess
end

h = MyHash.new(:foo => 'bar', 'baz' => 'blip')
h['foo'] # => 'bar'
h[:foo]  # => 'bar'
h[:baz]  # => 'blip'
h['baz'] # => 'blip'

.inject(hash) ⇒ Object

Injects indifferent access into a duplicate of the hash provided. See #inject!

def self.inject(hash)
  inject!(hash.dup)
end

.inject!(hash) ⇒ Object

This will inject indifferent access into an instance of a hash without modifying the actual class. This is what allows IndifferentAccess to spread to sub-hashes.

  hash.convert!
end

Instance Method Details

#convert!Object

Iterates through the keys and values, reconverting them to their proper indifferent state. Used when IndifferentAccess is injecting itself into member hashes.
