struct YAML::Any

Overview

YAML::Any is a convenient wrapper around all possible YAML core types (YAML::Any::Type) and can be used for traversing dynamic or unknown YAML structures.

require "yaml"

data = YAML.parse <<-END
         ---
         foo:
           bar:
             baz:
               - qux
               - fox
         END
data["foo"]["bar"]["baz"][0].as_s # => "qux"
data["foo"]["bar"]["baz"].as_a    # => ["qux", "fox"]

Note that methods used to traverse a YAML structure, #[], #[]? and #each, always return a YAML::Any to allow further traversal. To convert them to String, Array, etc., use the as_ methods, such as #as_s, #as_a, which perform a type check against the raw underlying value. This means that invoking #as_s when the underlying value is not a String will raise: the value won't automatically be converted (parsed) to a String.

Constructors

Instance Method Summary

Constructor Detail

def self.new(ctx : YAML::ParseContext, node : YAML::Nodes::Node)Source

def self.new(raw : Type)Source

Creates a Any that wraps the given Type.

Instance Method Detail

def ==(other)Source

Returns true if the raw object is equal to other.

def ==(other : YAML::Any)Source

Returns true if both self and other's raw object are equal.

def [](index_or_key) : YAML::AnySource

Assumes the underlying value is an Array or Hash and returns the element at the given index_or_key.

Raises if the underlying value is not an Array nor a Hash.

def []?(index_or_key) : YAML::Any?Source

Assumes the underlying value is an Array or Hash and returns the element at the given index_or_key, or nil if out of bounds or the key is missing.

Raises if the underlying value is not an Array nor a Hash.

def as_a : Array(Any)Source

Checks that the underlying value is Array, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_a? : Array(Any)?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Array, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_bool : BoolSource

Checks that the underlying value is Bool, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_bool? : Bool?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Bool, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_bytes : BytesSource

Checks that the underlying value is Bytes, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_bytes? : Bytes?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Bytes, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_f : Float64Source

Checks that the underlying value is Float64, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_f32 : Float32Source

Checks that the underlying value is Float, and returns its value as an Float32. Raises otherwise.

def as_f32? : Float32?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Float, and returns its value as an Float32. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_f? : Float64?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Float64, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_h : Hash(Any, Any)Source

Checks that the underlying value is Hash, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_h? : Hash(Any, Any)?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Hash, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_i : Int32Source

Checks that the underlying value is Int64, and returns its value as Int32. Raises otherwise.

def as_i64 : Int64Source

Checks that the underlying value is Int64, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_i64? : Int64?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Int64, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_i? : Int32?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Int64, and returns its value as Int32. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_nil : NilSource

Checks that the underlying value is Nil, and returns nil. Raises otherwise.

def as_s : StringSource

Checks that the underlying value is String, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_s? : String?Source

Checks that the underlying value is String, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def as_time : TimeSource

Checks that the underlying value is Time, and returns its value. Raises otherwise.

def as_time? : Time?Source

Checks that the underlying value is Time, and returns its value. Returns nil otherwise.

def cloneSource

Returns a new YAML::Any instance with the #raw value #cloneed.

def dig(index_or_key, *subkeys)Source

Traverses the depth of a structure and returns the value, otherwise raises.

def dig?(index_or_key, *subkeys)Source

Traverses the depth of a structure and returns the value. Returns nil if not found.

def dupSource

Returns a new YAML::Any instance with the #raw value #duped.

def hash(hasher)Source

def raw : TypeSource

Returns the raw underlying value, a Type.

def size : IntSource

Assumes the underlying value is an Array or Hash and returns its size.

Raises if the underlying value is not an Array or Hash.

def to_json(builder : JSON::Builder)Source

def to_json_object_keySource

Forwards #to_json_object_key to #raw if it responds to that method, raises JSON::Error otherwise.
