Defect #4056

Rename named_scope :public for Project to something else

Resolution:Fixed Affected version:


As the word public is reserved in ruby, the attempt to mock/stub the model Project fails, since the line that introduces a new public method fails due to the fact that word 'public' is redefined by the named_scope.

I suspect you may meet the case while setting up the shoulda.

Renamed Project#public named_scope so it will not override Ruby's public method

  • Category set to Projects

Agreed. I ran into this when I would mock Project.public in my tests. What do you propose renaming it to? Project.public_projects? Project.all_public?

#2 Updated by Dmitri Kouikoff almost 13 years ago

I think :all_public is pretty good. As a variant I was thinking about :public_state. :-)

Project.all_public it is. Thanks for the suggestion. r2941
