Overview

Implements a hash where keys :foo and "foo" are considered to be the same.

rgb = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new

rgb[:black] = '#000000'
rgb[:black]  # => '#000000'
rgb['black'] # => '#000000'

rgb['white'] = '#FFFFFF'
rgb[:white]  # => '#FFFFFF'
rgb['white'] # => '#FFFFFF'

Internally symbols are mapped to strings when used as keys in the entire writing interface (calling []=, merge, etc). This mapping belongs to the public interface. For example, given:

hash = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new(a: 1)

You are guaranteed that the key is returned as a string:

hash.keys # => ["a"]

Technically other types of keys are accepted:

hash = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new(a: 1)
hash[0] = 0
hash # => {"a"=>1, 0=>0}

but this class is intended for use cases where strings or symbols are the expected keys and it is convenient to understand both as the same. For example the params hash in Ruby on Rails.

Note that core extensions define Hash#with_indifferent_access:

rgb = { black: '#000000', white: '#FFFFFF' }.with_indifferent_access

which may be handy.

Instance Method Details

#[]=(key, value) ⇒ Object Also known as: store

Assigns a new value to the hash:

hash = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash[:key] = 'value'

This value can be later fetched using either :key or 'key'.

#fetch(key, *extras) ⇒ Object

Same as Hash#fetch where the key passed as argument can be either a string or a symbol:

counters = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
counters[:foo] = 1

counters.fetch('foo')          # => 1
counters.fetch(:bar, 0)        # => 0
counters.fetch(:bar) {|key| 0} # => 0
counters.fetch(:zoo)           # => KeyError: key not found: "zoo"

def fetch(key, *extras)
  super(convert_key(key), *extras)
end

#key?(key) ⇒ Boolean Also known as: include?, has_key?, member?

Checks the hash for a key matching the argument passed in:

hash = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash['key'] = 'value'
hash.key?(:key)  # => true
hash.key?('key') # => true

end

#merge(hash, &block) ⇒ Object

This method has the same semantics of update, except it does not modify the receiver but rather returns a new hash with indifferent access with the result of the merge.

#replace(other_hash) ⇒ Object

Replaces the contents of this hash with other_hash.

h = { "a" => 100, "b" => 200 }
h.replace({ "c" => 300, "d" => 400 }) #=> {"c"=>300, "d"=>400}

def replace(other_hash)
  super(self.class.new_from_hash_copying_default(other_hash))
end

#reverse_merge(other_hash) ⇒ Object

Like merge but the other way around: Merges the receiver into the argument and returns a new hash with indifferent access as result:

hash = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash['a'] = nil
hash.reverse_merge(a: 0, b: 1) # => {"a"=>nil, "b"=>1}

def reverse_merge(other_hash)
  super(self.class.new_from_hash_copying_default(other_hash))
end

#reverse_merge!(other_hash) ⇒ Object

Same semantics as reverse_merge but modifies the receiver in-place.

#symbolize_keysObject

#to_hashObject

# File 'motion/hash_with_indifferent_access.rb', line 228

def to_options!; self end

#update(other_hash) ⇒ Object Also known as: merge!

Updates the receiver in-place, merging in the hash passed as argument:

hash_1 = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash_1[:key] = 'value'

hash_2 = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash_2[:key] = 'New Value!'

hash_1.update(hash_2) # => {"key"=>"New Value!"}

The argument can be either an MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess or a regular Hash. In either case the merge respects the semantics of indifferent access.

If the argument is a regular hash with keys :key and “key” only one of the values end up in the receiver, but which one is unspecified.

When given a block, the value for duplicated keys will be determined by the result of invoking the block with the duplicated key, the value in the receiver, and the value in other_hash. The rules for duplicated keys follow the semantics of indifferent access:

hash_1[:key] = 10
hash_2['key'] = 12
hash_1.update(hash_2) { |key, old, new| old + new } # => {"key"=>22}

    other_hash.each_pair do |key, value|
      if block_given? && key?(key)
        value = yield(convert_key(key), self[key], value)
      end
      regular_writer(convert_key(key), convert_value(value))
    end
    self
  end
end

#values_at(*indices) ⇒ Object

Returns an array of the values at the specified indices:

hash = MotionSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess.new
hash[:a] = 'x'
hash[:b] = 'y'
hash.values_at('a', 'b') # => ["x", "y"]
