Facets / Annotations A Complete In Code Annotations System by Trans and George Moschovitis http://facets.rubyforge.org [ S y n o p s i s ] Annotations provides a complete and easy to use system of annotating methods and arbitrary objects.The annotations are defined in-code, not in comments, so it is fully reflective without any preproccessing. [ W h a t ' s N e w ] This is Facets/Annotations first release as an independent project. As with all Facets' subprojects it is included in the complete facets package. So if you have 'facets' installed you do not need this. Version 2.0+ is a major simplification over 1.0 series. Overall speed is much faster and the notation more consistant. Where before one would use "ann.attr_name.ann_name", now it's ann(:attr_name, :ann_name). This change was inspired by Ara T. Howard. There are two libs, ann.rb provides the ann method and ann_attr.rb augments the common attibute methods to handle annotations. [ E x a m p l e ] require 'facets/ann_attr.rb class X attr :foo, String, :default => "bar" end X.ann :foo, :class #=> String X.ann :foo, :default #=> "bar" X.ann :foo, :default => "baz" X.ann :foo, :default #=> "baz" [ I n s t a l l a t i o n ] IMPORTANT! This library is included in the complete facets package. You do not this library if you already have facets installed. You can install either via gem or tarball. gem install facets_annotations or wget http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/18317/facets... cd facets_annotations sudo ruby setup.rb [ C r e d i t ] Trans [Implementation] George Moschovitis [Original Concept] Ara T.

Sorry, I overlooked a dependency for the annotations package. Should have it fixed tomorrow. T.
