Module: Hashie::Extensions::MethodQuery

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

Overview

MethodQuery gives you the ability to check for the truthiness of a key via method calls. Note that it will return false if the key is set to a non-truthful value, not if the key isn't set at all. Use #key? for checking if a key has been set.

MethodQuery will check against both string and symbol names of the method for existing keys. It also patches #respond_to to appropriately detect the query methods.

Examples:

class MyHash < Hash
  include Hashie::Extensions::MethodQuery
end

h = MyHash.new
h['abc'] = 123
h.abc? # => true
h['def'] = nil
h.def? # => false
h.hji? # => NoMethodError
