struct Spectator::LazyWrapper


Lazily stores a value of any type. Combines Lazy and Wrapper.

Contains no value until the first call to #get is made. Any type can be stored in this wrapper. However, the type must always be known when retrieving it via #get. The type is inferred from the block, and all blocks must return the same type. Because of this, it is recommended to only have #get called in one location.

This type is expected to be used like so:

@wrapper : LazyWrapper

# ...

def lazy_load
  @wrapper.get { some_expensive_operation }
