Virtus 1.0 Jump to Story

This weekend, Piotr Solnica released Virtus 1.0. Virtus was built from extracting the dynamic property definitions in DataMapper into its own library. Think of it kind of similarly to attr_accessor but with 100% more utility, or as they put it, “Attributes on Steroids for Plain Old Ruby Objects.” It supports defaults, type checks, coercion, and a whole lot more. Everyone has probably rolled their own library for doing something like this and Piotr and the rest of the team have done an incredible job with Virtus.
