The universal Base class you've always wanted.
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"
deflatemethods? Those come from the
Zlibmodules. And the
SEPARATORconstant 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!
