Dynamic include

Hello,

I try to include some modules to a class instance, but I have
problems with the scope, here’s what I did:

person.roles.each do |role|
class << person
include role.class.const_get(‘Functions’)
end if role.class.const_defined?(‘Functions’)
end unless person.nil?

As you can see role is not defined when I include it, does anybody
know how I can add some singleton methods to person?

Regards
Florian

Maybe the module Functions is the culprit? Are the methods module
functions (“def self.some_method”), or mixin functions (“def
some_method”) in the module?

Mixin:

class ManagerRole < Role
module Functions
def hire( person )
self.company << person
end
end
end

I smell a Ruby bug / gotcha.

Apparently, in metaclass scope, the surrounding scope just isn’t
visible.

Try a workaround:

person.roles.each do |role|
if role.class.const_defined?(‘Functions’)
class << person
self
end.class_eval do
include role.class.const_get(‘Functions’)
end
end
end unless person.nil?

PS: Statement modifiers after whole blocks? Ick.

Ok, I just tested it, but now even a person with a CustomerRole and
no ManagerRole role has the methods once they are included, thanks
anyway. :smiley:
dblack, extend works excactly the way I want it to, thank you too :slight_smile:

Result…

if person = self.send( dyn_finder, *find_args )
m_name = ‘Functions’
functions = person.roles.inject([]) do |f,r|
r.class.const_defined?(m_name) and
f << r.class.const_get(m_name)
end and person.extend *functions
end
