obviously you want to mix in the module Searchable into your ActiveRecord::Base. by using extend the methods inside the Searchable- module become class methods (with "include" they would become instance methods). > My question is why do we define such a class in environment.rb > What is the actual purpose of this since i don't know your code, i can't really tell you, what you are doing (or trying to do). besides: shouldn't you know that yourself?
