This gem provides a simple way to setup delayed deprecation notices.

This can be useful to remind you to cleanup a piece of code, for instance if you release in multiple steps. It's also an alternative to FIXME comments that will actually warn you when running your test suite.

Gem Version Maintainability Test Coverage


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'delayed_deprecation'

Please note that because of a current dependency to activesupport this gem is optimised to be used with Ruby on Rails.


You can use it as a one liner:"Only for launch", reconsider_after:, 10, 1), owner: "Alice")

Or pass it a block:"To refactor", reconsider_after:, 10, 1), owner: "Bob") do
  # Code to be executed
