I was working with some concerns and ran into an issue with calling
super from one and it led me on a wild goose chase trying to figure out if it was feasible or not. Long story short, it’s actually pretty simple.
Instead of using
included do, you can do something similar in to prepend the module. ActiveSupport::Concern handles everything when you use the
included block so you don’t actually have to add:
It seems like a pretty small step to add a
prepended block that would handle
prepend_features along with its dependencies. Is there any interest in having this be part of ActiveSupport::Concern? I would be interested in making a PR, but first I wanted to see if anyone had an argument against it.
Here’s an old (rather short) discussion about it: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/rubyonrails-core/sSk9IEW74Ro/VNXhqg78hesJ
