class Object
# Returns +value+ after yielding +value+ to the block. This simplifies the
# process of constructing an object, performing work on the object, and then
# returning the object from a method. It is a Ruby-ized realization of the K
# combinator, courtesy of Mikael Brockman.
#
# ==== Examples
#
# # Without returning
# def foo
# values = []
# values << "bar"
# values << "baz"
# return values
# end
#
# foo # => ['bar', 'baz']
#
# # returning with a local variable
# def foo
# returning values = [] do
# values << 'bar'
# values << 'baz'
# end
# end
#
# foo # => ['bar', 'baz']
#
# # returning with a block argument
# def foo
# returning [] do |values|
# values << 'bar'
# values << 'baz'
# end
# end
#
# foo # => ['bar', 'baz']
def returning(value)
yield(value)
value
end
# An elegant way to factor duplication out of options passed to a series of
# method calls. Each method called in the block, with the block variable as
# the receiver, will have its options merged with the default +options+ hash
# provided. Each method called on the block variable must take an options
# hash as its final argument.
#
# with_options :order => 'created_at', :class_name => 'Comment' do |post|
# post.has_many :comments, :conditions => ['approved = ?', true], :dependent => :delete_all
# post.has_many :unapproved_comments, :conditions => ['approved = ?', false]
# post.has_many :all_comments
# end
#
# Can also be used with an explicit receiver:
#
# map.with_options :controller => "people" do |people|
# people.connect "/people", :action => "index"
# people.connect "/people/:id", :action => "show"
# end
#
def with_options(options)
yield ActiveSupport::OptionMerger.new(self, options)
end
# A duck-type assistant method. For example, Active Support extends Date
# to define an acts_like_date? method, and extends Time to define
# acts_like_time?. As a result, we can do "x.acts_like?(:time)" and
# "x.acts_like?(:date)" to do duck-type-safe comparisons, since classes that
# we want to act like Time simply need to define an acts_like_time? method.
def acts_like?(duck)
respond_to? "acts_like_#{duck}?"
end
# Tries to send the method only if object responds to it. Return +nil+ otherwise.
# It will also forward any arguments and/or block like Object#send does.
#
# ==== Example :
#
# # Without try
# @person ? @person.name : nil
#
# With try
# @person.try(:name)
#
# # try also accepts arguments/blocks for the method it is trying
# Person.try(:find, 1)
# @people.try(:map) {|p| p.name}
def try(method, *args, &block)
send(method, *args, &block) if respond_to?(method, true)
end
