module ActiveSupport
# A typical module looks like this:
#
# module M
# def self.included(base)
# base.extend ClassMethods
# scope :disabled, -> { where(disabled: true) }
# end
#
# module ClassMethods
# ...
# end
# end
#
# By using <tt>ActiveSupport::Concern</tt> the above module could instead be
# written as:
#
# require 'active_support/concern'
#
# module M
# extend ActiveSupport::Concern
#
# included do
# scope :disabled, -> { where(disabled: true) }
# end
#
# module ClassMethods
# ...
# end
# end
#
# Moreover, it gracefully handles module dependencies. Given a +Foo+ module
# and a +Bar+ module which depends on the former, we would typically write the
# following:
#
# module Foo
# def self.included(base)
# base.class_eval do
# def self.method_injected_by_foo
# ...
# end
# end
# end
# end
#
# module Bar
# def self.included(base)
# base.method_injected_by_foo
# end
# end
#
# class Host
# include Foo # We need to include this dependency for Bar
# include Bar # Bar is the module that Host really needs
# end
#
# But why should +Host+ care about +Bar+'s dependencies, namely +Foo+? We
# could try to hide these from +Host+ directly including +Foo+ in +Bar+:
#
# module Bar
# include Foo
# def self.included(base)
# base.method_injected_by_foo
# end
# end
#
# class Host
# include Bar
# end
#
# Unfortunately this won't work, since when +Foo+ is included, its <tt>base</tt>
# is the +Bar+ module, not the +Host+ class. With <tt>ActiveSupport::Concern</tt>,
# module dependencies are properly resolved:
#
# require 'active_support/concern'
#
# module Foo
# extend ActiveSupport::Concern
# included do
# class_eval do
# def self.method_injected_by_foo
# ...
# end
# end
# end
# end
#
# module Bar
# extend ActiveSupport::Concern
# include Foo
#
# included do
# self.method_injected_by_foo
# end
# end
#
# class Host
# include Bar # works, Bar takes care now of its dependencies
# end
