#autoload_module!(into, const_name, qualified_name, path_suffix) ⇒ Object

Attempt to autoload the provided module name by searching for a directory matching the expected path suffix. If found, the module is created and assigned to into's constants with the name const_name. Provided that the directory was loaded from a reloadable base path, it is added to the set of constants that are to be unloaded.

end

#autoloadable_module?(path_suffix) ⇒ Boolean

Does the provided path_suffix correspond to an autoloadable module? Instead of returning a boolean, the autoload base for this module is returned.

#load_file(path, const_paths = loadable_constants_for_path(path)) ⇒ Object

Load the file at the provided path. const_paths is a set of qualified constant names. When loading the file, Dependencies will watch for the addition of these constants. Each that is defined will be marked as autoloaded, and will be removed when Dependencies.clear is next called.

If the second parameter is left off, then Dependencies will construct a set of names that the file at path may define. See loadable_constants_for_path for more details.

#new_constants_in(*descs) ⇒ Object

Run the provided block and detect the new constants that were loaded during its execution. Constants may only be regarded as 'new' once – so if the block calls new_constants_in again, then the constants defined within the inner call will not be reported in this one.

If the provided block does not run to completion, and instead raises an exception, any new constants are regarded as being only partially defined and will be removed immediately.

#remove_unloadable_constants!Object

Remove the constants that have been autoloaded, and those that have been marked for unloading. Before each constant is removed a callback is sent to its class/module if it implements before_remove_const.

The callback implementation should be restricted to cleaning up caches, etc. as the environment will be in an inconsistent state, e.g. other constants may have already been unloaded and not accessible.
