Module: Wright::DSL

Defined in:
lib/wright/dsl.rb

Overview

Includable Wright script DSL.

Contains resource methods for all registered resources.

Examples:

# define a new resource at runtime
class KitchenSink < Wright::Resource; end

# register the resource
Wright::DSL.register_resource KitchenSink

extend Wright::DSL

kitchen_sink "I don't do anything"

# resource methods accept blocks
kitchen_sink 'I am sooo useful' do |k|
  puts k.name
end
# output: I am sooo useful

# save resource for later use
a_sink_to_remember = kitchen_sink 'Me too, me too!'
a_sink_to_remember.class
# => KitchenSink
