DESCRIPTION:

People love Base classes! They have tons of methods waiting to be used. Just check out

ActiveRecord::Base
's method list:
>> ActiveRecord::Base.methods.length
=> 572

But why stop there? Why not have even more methods? In fact, let's put every method on one Base class!

So I did. It's called Base. Just subclass it and feel free to directly reference any class method, instance method, or constant defined on any module or class in the system. Like this:

class Cantaloupe < Base
  def embiggen
    encode64(deflate(SEPARATOR))
  end
end

>> Cantaloupe.new.embiggen => "eJzTBwAAMAAw\n"

See that

embiggen
method calling
encode64
and
deflate
methods? Those come from the
Base64
and
Zlib
modules. And the
SEPARATOR
constant is defined in
File
. Base don't care where it's defined! Base calls what it wants!

By the way, remember those 572 ActiveRecord methods? That's amateur stuff. Check out Base loaded inside a Rails app:

>> Base.new.methods.count
=> 5794

It's so badass that it takes five seconds just to answer that question!

Base is just craaazzy! It's the most fearless class in all of Ruby. Base doesn't afraid of anything!
