ExtendBang

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'extend_bang'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install extend_bang

Usage

This gems add the extend! method to Object. This method behaves the same way as extend, except overrides existing methods.

Simply add require "extend_bang" to the top of your file to get started. If you're using rails, the autoloading should handle this for you.

require "extend_bang"

module Foo
  def self.test
    "Foo Test"
  end
end

module Bar
  def test
    "Bar Test"
  end
end

# Here we extend `Foo`'s singleton class with `Bar`.
Foo.extend Bar

# We can see here that although we re-define `test`, it maintains `Foo`'s initial implementation.
p Foo.test 
# => "Foo Test"

# Now, if we use `#extend!`, we can make it override the method

Foo.extend! Bar
p Foo.test
# => "Bar Test"
