Using ActiveSupport's autoload_at

After discovering

I thought
it’d be nice if we could replace our zillion occurences of:

autoload :Something, ‘some_path/something’


autoload_at ‘some_path’ do
autoload :Something

But I keep getting undefined method autoload_at. I tried digging -
ActionSupport::Autoload is being loaded by the time it reaches the above
line (I tested by putting a puts ‘loaded’ in
activesupport/lib/active_support/dependencies/autoload.rb and it worked,
and also require ‘active_support/dependencies/autoload’ returned false.

I can only guess that while that file is being loaded, the methods it
defined aren’t replacing Kernel’s default autoloading support. I could
try using “extend ActiveSupport::Autoload”, but I don’t want to do this
in every single file that uses autoloading (as mentioned above, our
project has a bunch of such files)

I also wasn’t able to find any online guides on docs on how to use
autoload_at, except the above API link.

Could someone help me with this please? Or is the activesupport’s
autoload library not intended for public use to begin with?
