Great project name. The jokes on the site alone are worth it. :slight_smile:

Seriously, it’s a great idea too. I wish we would see things like
ActiveRecord’s finder system move to something like this, instead of
just encouraging all plugins to alias and rewrite. Nice work.

Just had fun playing with this. However, it seems that HookR doesn’t
specify its gem dependencies which makes it a bit of a pain to install
via RubyGems, and then requires its development dependencies to be
installed (such as cucumber) for it to run.

Thanks for this project, it’s neat stuff!

Oops. I’ll fix this ASAP. Also, Cucumber shouldn’t be needed at all

  • I think that might be part of the elaborate developer dependency
    network introduced by Newgem, which I used to create the FailFast gem.
    That’s part of the reason I switched to using Mr. Bones when I made
    HookR into a Gem.
