The before_after_save plugin reorders some internal Sequel operations so they happen before after_create, after_update, and after_save are called, instead of after. These operations are:
Resetting the explicit modified flag
Refreshing the model or clearing changed columns after creation
This behavior will become the default in Sequel 5.
# Make all model subclasses perform the operations before after_save Sequel::Model.plugin :before_after_save # Make the Album class perform the operations before after_save Album.plugin :before_after_save
