Generating RDoc for App

I notice that when I run rake doc:app, that the named_scope declarations
I have in my models aren’t being included in the documentation.

Is there a way to get named_scopes in the rdocs?

Thanks,
Will

Even IDE s have problem with named_scopes. I don’t think RDoc can
recognize
it. Besides looking like a train wreck, that’s one of the reason I don’t
like named_scopes.

Who cares about IDEs? :slight_smile: No IDE that I’m aware of really works well
with Ruby’s dynamic features. IMHO, that’s a reason to not use an IDE
for Ruby.

I think you’re right, but it wouldn’t be hard to patch RDoc to recognize
it if you want to.

Those are bad reasons to dislike named_scope, frankly. I don’t think
the syntax is at all bad, and using a named_scope makes most of the rest
of your code not look like a trainwreck. I’ll take a named_scope over
the old way of doing it any day.

For anyone interested, I emailed Eric H. who mentioned that it is
possible:

You’ll need ## above your comment like:

This is the test model

class Test < ActiveRecord::Base

Sort all tests by name

named_scope :sort_by_name, :order => “name ASC”
end

See ‘Metaprogrammed Methods’ here:

Code, as opposed to unsubstantiated assertions, would be much more
credible.

The OP’s problem isn’t mine, so I’m not going to spend the time writing
that code. I was just trying to remind him that it’s feasible if he
wants to do it. No more, no less.

In any case, it seems that a patch isn’t necessary, based on the feature
mentioned in http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/213558#927241 . I’m happy
to know about that feature, and I will probably use it a great deal.
