AutoScope Plugin

= XlSuite::AutoScope

Automatically create scoped access methods on your ActiveRecord models.

== Examples
Declare your scopes within your ActiveRecord::Base subclasses.

class Contact < ActiveRecord::Base
   auto_scope \
       :old => {:find => {:conditions => ["born_on < ?", 30.years.ago]}},
       :young => {:find => {:conditions => ["born_on > ?", 1.year.ago]}}
end

class Testimonial < ActiveRecord::Base
   auto_scope \
       :approved => {
           :find => {:conditions => ["approved_at < ?", proc {Time.now}]},
           :create => {:approved_at => proc {Time.now}}},
       :unapproved => {
           :find => {:conditions => "approved_at IS NULL"},
           :create => {:approved_at => nil}}
end

These declarations give you access to the following scoped methods:
Testimonial.approved.count
Testimonial.unapproved.create!(params[:testimonial])
@young_contacts = Contact.young
@contacts = Contact.old.find(:all, :conditions => ["name LIKE ?",
params[:name]])
