# ExConstructor

ExConstructor is an Elixir library which makes it easy to instantiate
structs from external data, such as that emitted by a JSON parser.

Add `use ExConstructor` after a `defstruct` statement to inject
a constructor function into the module.
The generated constructor, called `new` by default,
handles map-vs-keyword-list, string-vs-atom, and camelCase-vs-under_score
input data issues automatically, DRYing up your code and letting you
move on to the interesting parts of your program.

## Example

defmodule TestStruct do
  defstruct field_one: nil,
            field_two: nil,
            field_three: nil,
            field_four: nil
  use ExConstructor
end{"field_one" => "a", "fieldTwo" => "b", :field_three => "c", :fieldFour => "d"})
# => %TestStruct{field_one: "a", field_two: "b", field_three: "c", field_four: "d"}
