Support for Guard gem


I know this sound a lot like an xkcd://1172: Every change breaks someone’s workflow, but I can try to don’t.

While I was trying to formulate a Proof of concept of a bug related to Dry-Validation I though it was a good idea to spin my local Guard and start iterating my case using an new spec file (and being sure I didn’t break some other spec also). When I tried to use Guard got this error:

Users/esparta/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.9@dry-rb/gems/guard-rspec-4.7.3/lib/guard/rspec_defaults.rb:1:in `<top (required)>': Guard is not a module (TypeError)

Going deep on this, turns out Dry Validation defines a class called Guard, specifically Dry::Validation::Guard in lib/dry/validation/schema_compiler.rb, since is a class, Guard gem cannot work as intended because expect to be a module.

Is there any chance to rename the conflicting class to something like Dry::Validation::InternalGuard? The following diff made possible to continue working with Guard as expected:

Of course I’d understand if this is not possible.


The proper fix is to add require 'dry/validation/schema_compiler' at the top of dry/validation/executor.rb


I tried that fix and still have the same problem.

For some reason while running any spec through Guad/RSpec, for ruby interpreter there’s a constant called Guard even if it’s namespaced as Dry::Validation::Guard, so later on, guard-rspec tries to redefine Guard as a module making ruby not happy as in running like this:

class Guard
# => nil
module Guard
TypeError: Guard is not a module
        from (irb):3
        from /Users/esparta/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.2.9/bin/irb:11:in `<main>'

While we mean to run like this:

module Dry
  module Validation
    class Guard
# => nil
module Guard
# => nil
#  => Class
# => Module

Looks like there’s a lot of unknown facts on my stack (Guard + Guard/RSpec) and is not worthy to continue digging since there’s no use case and I’m the only one using it :slight_smile:

Thanks for your help and time.
