Shenanigans

shenanigan (plural shenanigans):

  1. Trickery, games; skulduggery. To "call", "claim" or "declare" shenanigans is to rhetorically label something as officially deceitful, improper, or otherwise incorrect. "The advertisement said it would cost $50 but they charged me $75 at the register. I declare shenanigans." The speaker passes off the statement as having some sort of implied official effect, but in reality, it is simply a complaint.

  2. A deceitful confidence trick, or mischief causing discomfort or annoyance. You should learn to spot their shenanigans and avoid being fooled.

  3. Mischievous play, especially by children.

Introduction

Ruby Facets is the premiere collection of general purpose method extensions and standard additions for the Ruby programming language. This is not Ruby Facets though, so what you get is a random collection of methods I wrote because I found them interesting and/or useful. Some of them I actually also contributed to Facets, although sometimes they have different names or slightly different implementations.

Installation

Shenanigans can be installed via RubyGems.

$ gem install shenanigans

I only works on 1.9.3 and I generally only test it with the most current Ruby release.

Usage

If you really want the whole shebang, you can get it this way:

require 'shenanigans'

Requiring a single method works as follows:

require 'shenanigans/<class|module>/<method>'

Requiring all the extensions of a class or module also works:

require 'shenanigans/kernel'

Contribute

If you have something you want to contribute to Shenanigans, you shoud reconsider and add it to Facets instead. This is a library for my own wonky ideas and I don't think it will ever see any real usage.
