ActiveRecord::Base in environment.rb


#1

have the following code in environment.rb

class ActiveRecord::Base
extend Searchable
end

in the lib folder there is searchable.rb and inside that there is

module Searchable

    My question is why do we define such a class in environment.rb

What is the actual purpose of this

Thanks in advance

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

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?
