Gem Version

Snuffle analyzes source code to identify "data clumps", clusters of attributes that are often used together. It uses this analysis to propose objects that may be extracted from a given class. It also looks for objects that are hinted at by method names and identifies them as "latent objects". For example, if you have home_address and work_address methods in a User class, Snuffle will tell you that you might want to extract those methods to a latent Address class.

Please note that Snuffle is still pre-release and will not be ready for serious use until it hits version 1.0.0.

Based on an idea developed with Kerri Miller (@kerrizor).
