Kernel#dependency does nothing after the Dependencies BootLoader ran

Reported by Carl Lerche | June 5th, 2008 @ 01:43 PM

If Kernel#dependency is used anytime after Merb::BootLoader::Dependencies is run, it does nothing. This is because dependency adds all the dependencies to an array that Merb::BootLoader::Dependencies iterates through and loads once.

This causes a problem if dependency is used in a before_app_loads or after_app_loads block since both are invoked after the Dependencies BootLoader is run.

The patch changes Kernel#dependency so that instead of appending directly to an array, it invokes an append_dependency method. The append_dependency automatically calls Kernel#load_dependency IF Merb::BootLoader::Dependencies already ran.

    @carl I fixed this a more generic way that allows you to check whether any BootLoader is complete (in case we need this functionality later).

    • 'master' of git://github.com/wycats/merb-core: (192 commits)


    Revert partial counter and yielding.

    Remove some duplication

    For crying out loud.

    Refactor display. WARNING: This commit might not be stable. I need to add a bunch more specs for display before I feel confident.

    Make the TemplateNotFound error read better. Slight refactor of _get_layout.

    Fix _template_for so it's actually readable


    Added Merb::Router.reset! and Merb::Router.capture

    Speedup Route URL generation

    Start work on fixing contaminated cousins bug.

    Changed controller inheritance of _template_root

    Added the ability to use full/absolute template paths for render, display and partial views

    This cannot be tested this way. It needs to be tested as a public spec (testing it privately here was a cop-out and fails when I fixed up the way dependency works).

    Allows passage of query string via env["QUERY_STRING"] in tests. [#358 state:resolved]

    Handles use of dependency after BootLoading. [#360 state:resolved]

    properly set the session_id_key

    added 2 specs for multipart formdata: (1) for checking request with IO, (2) for testing GET with content_type not erroring on multipart/form-data absence; fixed error with multipart/form-data absence.

    Made Class a lot more sane.

    Fix README for merb-gen app foo
