Seeking Feedback on Pull Request 1932 (Added Enumerable#count_by and tests)


I created a pull request that adds Enumerable#count_by, which leverages Enumerable#group_by to return the counts elements rather than arrays of the elements.

It’s a convenience method I’ve used for some time, mainly for debugging and logging, that I think belongs in core ActiveSupport with the other Enumerable additions. I’d appreciate feedback from the community on whether you agree on its usefulness, as well as the quality of the code, documentation, and tests.



I'm agree that the functionality you suggested could be useful, but it seems to be very specific. We already could do smth. like: Model.all.group_by(&:attr_name).map{| x, y| {x, y.size} }, or even which will return the counts of the elements.
