Copland IoC Container
Copland is an Inversion of Control (IoC) container, in the same vein as HiveMind, Spring, and PicoContainer (in the Java universe). It borrows concepts, terminology, and even some architecture from HiveMind, with the exception that it uses YAML for the package descriptors instead of XML.
Assuming you have RubyGems installed, all you have to do is:
gem --remote-install copland
This will install the latest version of Copland.
Copland is also distributed as a Ruby library. It’s not as easy to install this way, but it works. Simply grab the latest copland package from the website, untar it, and install it by typing:
Or, if you want a little more control over the installation:
ruby setup.rb --help
This will show you the options that are available to you, and then you can do each stage of the installation manually:
ruby setup.rb config ruby setup.rb setup ruby setup.rb install
Thanks go to:
- Matz, for creating Ruby in the first place.
- Howard Lewis Ship, for the HiveMind Java framework that inspired Copland.
