= Indentation

* http://github.com/samueldana/indentation

== DESCRIPTION:

A small library of extensions to Ruby's Array and String classes that allow indentation manipulation of Strings and Arrays of Strings. Has the capability of working with multi-line strings. If you frequently use String arrays to manipulate text, see synopsis (In README.rdoc) for examples of how indentation can make your life easier.

== EXAMPLES:
  
=== Indent

  # Default indentation is 2 spaces
    "test".indent # => "  test"

  # Amount of indentation can be changed
    "test".indent(3) # => "   test"

  # Indentation character (or string) is set as the second parameter of indent.
    "test".indent(2, "\t") # => "\t\ttest"
  
  # Operates on multi-line strings
    "this\nis\na\ntest".indent # => "  this\n  is\n  a\n  test"

  # Indent method accepts negative values (Removes tabs, spaces, and supplied indentation string)
    "  test".indent(-1) # => " test"
    "\t test".indent(-5) # => "test"
    "\t--     Test".indent(-10) # => "--     Test"
    "\t--     Test".indent(-10, '-') # => "Test"
    "--- Test".indent(-2, '--') # => "- Test"

  # Operates on arrays
    ["one", "two"].indent # => ["  one", "  two"]
    [["one", "  two"], ["uno", "\t\tdos"]].indent # => [["  one", "    two"], ["  uno", "  \t\tdos"]]


=== Reset Indentation

  # 'resets' the indentation of a string by finding the least amount of indentation in the String/Array, and
  # removing that amount from every line.
    "  def method_name\n    # Do stuff\n  end".reset_indentation # => "def method_name\n  # Do stuff\nend"
  
  # Operates on arrays
    ["  def method_name", "    # Do stuff", "  end"].reset_indentation # => ["def method_name", "  # Do stuff", "end"]
  
  # Useful for heredocs - must chomp to remove trailing newline
    my_string = <<-EOS.chomp.reset_indentation
      def method_name
        # Do stuff
      end
      EOS
    my_string # => "def method_name\n  # Do stuff\nend"

  # Accepts an indentation modifier
    " one\n  two".reset_indentation(1) # => " one\n  two"
    "   one\n  two".reset_indentation(0) # => " one\ntwo" # Default behavior
    " one\n  two".reset_indentation(-1) # => "one\ntwo"
  
  
=== Append Separator

  # Given an Array of Arrays or an Array of Strings, appends a separator object to all but the last element in the Array.
  # NOTE: For an Array of Strings the separator object must be a String, since it is appended to other Strings
    ["arg1", "arg2", "arg3"].append_separator("!") # => ["arg1!", "arg2!", "arg3"]
    [["line1"], ["line2"], ["line3"]].append_separator("") # => [["line1", ""], ["line2", ""], ["line3"]]
    [["line1", "line2"], ["line3", "line4"]].append_separator("") # => [["line1", "line2", ""], ["line3", "line4"]]
  
  # Useful combined with indent and join
    vars = ["var1", "var2", "var3", "var4"]
    method_def = ["def add_up(#{vars.join(', ')})"]
    method_body = vars.append_separator(" + ")
    method_def += method_body.indent
    method_def << "end"
    method_def.join("\n") # =>
      # def add_up(var1, var2, var3, var4)
      #   var1 + 
      #   var2 + 
      #   var3 + 
      #   var4
      # end
  
  # Handy for separating arrays of string arrays
    test_array = [["this", "is", "a", "test"], ["quick", "brown", "fox"], ["lazy", "typist"]]
    test_array.append_separator("").join("\n") # =>
      # this
      # is
      # a
      # test
      # 
      # quick
      # brown
      # fox
      # 
      # lazy
      # typist


=== Find Least Indentation

  # Given a String or Array of Strings, finds the least indentation on any line. Splits on newlines found within strings
  # to find the least indentation within a multi-line String
  "  test".find_least_indentation # => 2
  "   three\n  two \n one".find_least_indentation # => 1
  ["  two", "   three", "    four"].find_least_indentation # => 2
  ["  two", "   three", ["    four", "     five\n one"]].find_least_indentation # => 1
  
  # Option to ignore blank (no characters whatsoever) lines. 
  # Note, disabling this option will automatically disable :ignore_empty_lines
  # Default => true
    "   three\n".find_least_indentation # => 3
    "   three\n".find_least_indentation(:ignore_blank_lines => false) # => 0
  
  # Option to ignore both blank lines (no characters whatsoever) and empty lines (whitespace-only)
  # Implies :ignore_blank_lines => true when enabled
  # Default => true
    "   three\n ".find_least_indentation # => 3
    "   three\n ".find_least_indentation(:ignore_empty_lines => false) # => 1
    "   three\n".find_least_indentation # => 3
    "   three\n".find_least_indentation(:ignore_empty_lines => false) # => 0
  
  # To ignore blank, but not empty, lines:
    "   three\n ".find_least_indentation(:ignore_blank_lines => true, :ignore_empty_lines => false) # => 1
    "   three\n".find_least_indentation(:ignore_blank_lines => true, :ignore_empty_lines => false) # => 3
    
=== English Array Join

  # Given an Array of Strings and an optional conjunction, joins them using English list punctuation
  # to find the least indentation within a multi-line String
  ['one', 'two'].english_join # => "one and two"
  ['one', 'two', 'three'].english_join # => "one, two, and three"
  
  # Different conjunction
  ['one', 'two', 'three'].english_join('or') # => "one, two, or three"
  
  # Different separator
  ['one', 'two', 'three'].english_join('or', ' ') # => "one two or three"
