#inherited(subclass) ⇒ Object

When inheriting, we want to copy the fields from the parent class and set the on the child to start, mimicking the behaviour of the old class_inheritable_accessor that was deprecated in Rails edge.

Examples:

Inherit from this class.

Person.inherited(Doctor)

Parameters:

  • subclass (Class)

    The inheriting class.

Since:

  • 2.0.0.rc.6
