make-private

make-private is an ActiveRecord extension that will make all your active record properties private and give you control over what is private and what should be public.

Why make-private

By default active record makes all properties and associations public which does make it faster to develop with but breaks encapsulation by default. make-private has been developed to bring back encapsulation to active record model.

##Install

gem install make-private

Status

make-private is currently in development

Example

To use make-private private you simply have to include the module in your model, simple.

require 'make-private'

class BusinessModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  #a_property: string
  include MakePrivate

end

business_model = BusinessModel.new
business_model.a_property # This will throw a NoMethodError exception

Properties can be set as normal from within the model

require 'make-private'

class BusinessModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  #a_property: string
  include MakePrivate

  def do_something_useful parameter
    ##some logic
    self.a_property = parameter
  end

end

If you require to make a property publicly readable set the method to public

require 'make-private'

class BusinessModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  #a_property: string
  include MakePrivate

  public :a_property
end

business_model = BusinessModel.new
business_model.a_property # This will no longer throw a NoMethodError exception
business_model.a_property = "something interesting" # This will still throw a NoMethodError exception

Similarly if you really really really need to make the property setter public.

require 'make-private'

class BusinessModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  #a_property: string
  include MakePrivate

  public :a_property, :a_property=
end

business_model = BusinessModel.new
business_model.a_property # This will no longer throw a NoMethodError exception
business_model.a_property = "something interesting" # This will not throw a NoMethodError exception
