Heresy

A less-absurd subset of wot

An alternative to (some of) the Ruby standard library

Have you ever thought “gee, Ruby's standard library could use a bit of polish?”

Have you ever followed this thought with “I sure love Python's from x import y. I wonder if we can get something like that in Ruby?”

Do you wish Ruby's socket API was nicer?

Do you wish there was a better way to handle default values than throwing nils everywhere?

Then try Heresy today!

Using Heresy

Each component of Heresy is a standalone gem, and can be used as such. However, for simplicity, the heresy gem lists all of them as dependencies.

To take advantage of the latest heretical technology, simply add gem 'heresy' to your projects Gemfile, then require the relevant components as needed.
