module Sequel::Plugins::BooleanSubsets

  1. lib/sequel/plugins/boolean_subsets.rb

The boolean_subsets plugin allows for the automatic creation of subsets for for boolean columns, which can DRY up model classes that define such subsets manually. By default, subsets are created for all columns of type :boolean, with the subset name being the same as column name, and the conditions being column IS TRUE (assuming the database supports that syntax).

You can provide a block to the plugin, which will be called with column name symbol, and should return an array of arguments to pass to subset. Using this, you can change the method name and arguments for each column. This block is executed in the context of the model class.


# Add boolean subset methods for all columns of type :boolean
# in all model subclasses (called before loading subclasses)
Sequel::Model.plugin :boolean_subsets

# Add subsets for all boolean columns in the Album class

# Remove is_ from the front of the column name when creating the subset
# method name, and use (column = 'Y') as the filter conditions
Sequel::Model.plugin :boolean_subsets do |column|
  [column.to_s.sub(/\Ais_/, ''), {column=>'Y'}]

Public Class methods

configure (model, &block)

Add the boolean_attribute? class method to the model, and create attribute? boolean reader methods for the class's columns if the class has a dataset.
