Issue #12282 has been updated by k0kubun (Takashi Kokubun).


How about this name?

~~~
places.deep_fetch(:countries, :canada, :ontario)
~~~

I've encountered the case which I did "places.fetch(:countries).fetch(:canada).fetch(:ontario)" multiple times. I want this method.

Feature #12282: Hash#dig! for repeated applications of Hash#fetch

----------------------------------------
A new feature for your consideration: #dig! which is to #fetch as #dig is to #[]. For me and maybe many others, Hash#fetch is used much more than Hash#[]. And traversing multiple fetches isn't very convenient nor Ruby-like, e.g.: places.fetch(:countries).fetch(:canada).fetch(ontario).

Here's how it would work:

~~~ruby
places = { countries: { canada: true } }

places.dig  :countries, :canada  # => true
places.dig! :countries, :canada  # => true

places.dig  :countries, :canada, :ontario  # => nil
places.dig! :countries, :canada, :ontario  # => KeyError: Key not found: :ontario

~~~


Here's an implementation and tests: https://gist.github.com/dogweather/819ccdb41c9db0514c163cfdb1c528e2
