class Prism::AssocNode

Represents a hash key/value pair.

{ a => b }
  ^^^^^^

Attributes

key[R]

The key of the association. This can be any [non-void expression](github.com/ruby/prism/blob/main/docs/parsing_rules.md#non-void-expression).

{ a: b }
  ^

{ foo => bar }
  ^^^

{ def a; end => 1 }
  ^^^^^^^^^^
value[R]

The value of the association, if present. This can be any [non-void expression](github.com/ruby/prism/blob/main/docs/parsing_rules.md#non-void-expression).

{ foo => bar }
         ^^^

{ x: 1 }
     ^

Similar to type, this method returns a symbol that you can use for splitting on the type of the node without having to do a long === chain. Note that like type, it will still be slower than using == for a single class, but should be faster in a case statement or an array comparison.

Sometimes you want to check an instance of a node against a list of classes to see what kind of behavior to perform. Usually this is done by calling ‘[cls1, cls2].include?(node.class)` or putting the node into a case statement and doing `case node; when cls1; when cls2; end`. Both of these approaches are relatively slow because of the constant lookups, method calls, and/or array allocations.

Instead, you can call type, which will return to you a symbol that you can use for comparison. This is faster than the other approaches because it uses a single integer comparison, but also because if you’re on CRuby you can take advantage of the fact that case statements with all symbol keys will use a jump table.
