in short, I add in ruby bindings automatic inclusion of "dir"
repositories in Y2 paths to ruby load path. Reason is to have common
place to have pure ruby private ( in sense of not share it with rest of
ruby world ) files. Its intended usage is for various modules, classes
and other stuff that makes your plugins nicer. Include directory is not
good as it contain now translated code and contain some special magic
to make it work in ycp-way.
Namespace is shared between plugins so it make sense to use own
namespace there same way as in "include" directory.
Thanks locilka for initial idea.
For code now there is modules, clients and includes. Modules is
intended for modules that share its functionality over component
system. You can import it. Clients is scripts, that can be executed by
Yast2 environment. Include is tricky as it is code snippets that is
internally shared, but it has few limitations - It must be included in
code, it must be ensured that it is included only once, so it is very
limited compared to ruby ( or perl, python ) ability to share code
That leads to idea, that we need directory where you can have
proprietary parts of code that is intended only for given module and
its usage depends on language.
Current status is that it is supported only in ruby-bindings, but plan
is also to add it to perl and python bindings, if there is someone who
is interested in it (e.g. now in perl it must be all in one file or
use some tricky loading or write upstream perl library, that can be
Example demonstration ( not working, just to demonstrate, real example
comes after Milestone 4 ):
data = Services.load
dialog = MainDialog.new data
result = dialog.run
if result == :ok
