Adds support for Canadian programming conventions to the Ruby language


Canadian flag

It's well known that we have different conventions for programming in Canada. This gem attempts to make life easier for Canadian Rubyists by integrating these conventions into the Ruby language:

>> require 'canada'
=> true
>> [].empty_eh
=> true
>> [1,2,3].empty_eh
=> false
>> [].respond_to_eh?(:empty_eh?)
=> true
>> aboot
=> "#<Object:0x007f802b8b92c0>"
>> raise "something went wrong..."
RuntimeError: I'm sorry, but something went wrong...
  from (irb):6
  from /Users/godfrey/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p195/bin/irb:16:in `<main>'

Cool, eh?

Production Ready™, eh?

Yes. Proof: Build Status

What aboot performance?

We hand-tuned the gem's performance to keep it in line with everything else in Canada.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'canada'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install canada

Note: This gem requires Ruby 2.0.0 or higher.
