class Bundler::Thor::Group

Bundler::Thor has a special class called Bundler::Thor::Group. The main difference to Bundler::Thor class is that it invokes all commands at once. It also include some methods that allows invocations to be done at the class method, which are not available to Bundler::Thor commands.

Public Class Methods

short

When true, shows only usage.

# File lib/bundler/vendor/thor/lib/thor/group.rb, line 29
def help(shell)
  shell.say "Usage:"
  shell.say "  #{banner}\n"
  shell.say
  class_options_help(shell)
  shell.say desc if desc
end
invoke(*names, &block) click to toggle source

Invoke the given namespace or class given. It adds an instance method that will invoke the klass and command. You can give a block to configure how it will be invoked.

The namespace/class given will have its options showed on the help usage. Check ::invoke_from_option for more information.

# File lib/bundler/vendor/thor/lib/thor/group.rb, line 56
    def invoke(*names, &block)
      options = names.last.is_a?(Hash) ? names.pop : {}
      verbose = options.fetch(:verbose, true)

      names.each do |name|
        invocations[name] = false
        invocation_blocks[name] = block if block_given?

        class_eval <<-METHOD, __FILE__, __LINE__
          def _invoke_#{name.to_s.gsub(/\W/, '_')}
            klass, command = self.class.prepare_for_invocation(nil, #{name.inspect})

            if klass
              say_status :invoke, #{name.inspect}, #{verbose.inspect}
              block = self.class.invocation_blocks[#{name.inspect}]
              _invoke_for_class_method klass, command, &block
            else
              say_status :error, %(#{name.inspect} [not found]), :red
            end
          end
        METHOD
      end
    end
invoke_from_option(*names, &block) click to toggle source

Invoke a thor class based on the value supplied by the user to the given option named “name”. A class option must be created before this method is invoked for each name given.

Examples

class GemGenerator < Bundler::Thor::Group
  class_option :test_framework, :type => :string
  invoke_from_option :test_framework
end

Boolean options

In some cases, you want to invoke a thor class if some option is true or false. This is automatically handled by invoke_from_option. Then the option name is used to invoke the generator.

Preparing for invocation

In some cases you want to customize how a specified hook is going to be invoked. You can do that by overwriting the class method prepare_for_invocation. The class method must necessarily return a klass and an optional command.

Custom invocations

You can also supply a block to customize how the option is going to be invoked. The block receives two parameters, an instance of the current class and the klass to be invoked.

# File lib/bundler/vendor/thor/lib/thor/group.rb, line 110
    def invoke_from_option(*names, &block)
      options = names.last.is_a?(Hash) ? names.pop : {}
      verbose = options.fetch(:verbose, :white)

      names.each do |name|
        unless class_options.key?(name)
          raise ArgumentError, "You have to define the option #{name.inspect} " \
                              "before setting invoke_from_option."
        end

        invocations[name] = true
        invocation_blocks[name] = block if block_given?

        class_eval <<-METHOD, __FILE__, __LINE__
          def _invoke_from_option_#{name.to_s.gsub(/\W/, '_')}
            return unless options[#{name.inspect}]

            value = options[#{name.inspect}]
            value = #{name.inspect} if TrueClass === value
            klass, command = self.class.prepare_for_invocation(#{name.inspect}, value)

            if klass
              say_status :invoke, value, #{verbose.inspect}
              block = self.class.invocation_blocks[#{name.inspect}]
              _invoke_for_class_method klass, command, &block
            else
              say_status :error, %(\#{value} [not found]), :red
            end
          end
        METHOD
      end
    end
