README.markdown

merged_default_scopes

require 'merged_default_scopes' 

module SomePlugin
  def self.included(mod)
    mod.default_scope :conditions => {:deleted_at => nil}
  end
end

class SomeModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  include SomePlugin

  default_scope :order => :name
end

SomeModel.__send__(:scope, :find)
# => {:order => :name, :conditions => {:deleted_at => nil}}
#
# ... and all is right with the world

clear_default_scope

require 'merged_default_scopes' 

class SomeModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  include SomePluginThatMightSetDefaultScope
  include AnotherPluginThatMightSetDefaultScope

  clear_default_scope
  default_scope :order => :name
end

SomeModel.__send__(:scope, :find)
# => {:order => :name}
#
# ... and all is right with the world, assuming you want the old
# behaviour of default_scope, which is to overwrite previously set
# default scopes

Motivation

Sometimes plugins use default_scope to do what they do. We need a means of adding to the default scope without blowing it away.

This is going to be the behaviour of default_scope and clear_default_scope in rails-3 (as of http://github.com/rails/rails/commit/35a114a8941cb22d29a536f1215a23a8cf7c4756), so this gem serves as a back-port to rails-2.

Install

$ gem install merged_default_scopes
