Feature #12578

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 3 years ago

When I first saw the instance assignments in Crystal, I was floored... I have looked at all 18 pages in this tracker and thought it "must" have been mentioned in here... but I don't see it... pardon me if I missed it...

BUT

so in Crystal, this :

```ruby
class MyStuff

def initialize @thing_one , @thing_two
end

end
```


would replace :

```ruby
class MyStuff

def initialize thing_one , thing_two
@thing_one = thing_one
@thing_two = thing_two
end

end
```


One of the things I loved about ruby was `attr_accessor` attr_accessor / `reader` reader / `writer`... writer...

I know in Crystal, it is a macro, but still at the millions of lines of boilerplate that would go away...

Has no one thought of stealing this from Crystal or is there a good reason this does not exist? ( and I will go sit down and color now )
