new(klass, namespace = nil, name = nil)

Returns a new ActiveModel::Name instance. By default, the namespace and name option will take the namespace and name of the given class respectively.

module Foo
  class Bar
  end
end

ActiveModel::Name.new(Foo::Bar).to_s
# => "Foo::Bar"
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 145
def initialize(klass, namespace = nil, name = nil)
  @name = name || klass.name

  raise ArgumentError, "Class name cannot be blank. You need to supply a name argument when anonymous class given" if @name.blank?

  @unnamespaced = @name.sub(/^#{namespace.name}::/, '') if namespace

!~(regexp)

Equivalent to String#!~. Match the class name against the given regexp. Returns true if there is no match, otherwise false.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name !~ /Post/ # => false
BlogPost.model_name !~ /\d/   # => true
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 94
    
==(other)

Equivalent to String#<=>.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name <=> 'BlogPost'  # => 0
BlogPost.model_name <=> 'Blog'      # => 1
BlogPost.model_name <=> 'BlogPosts' # => -1
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 61
    
==(other)

Equivalent to String#==. Returns true if the class name and other are equal, otherwise false.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name == 'BlogPost'  # => true
BlogPost.model_name == 'Blog Post' # => false
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 30
    
===(other)

Equivalent to #==.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name === 'BlogPost'  # => true
BlogPost.model_name === 'Blog Post' # => false
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 45
    
=~(regexp)

Equivalent to String#=~. Match the class name against the given regexp. Returns the position where the match starts or nil if there is no match.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name =~ /Post/ # => 4
BlogPost.model_name =~ /\d/   # => nil
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 78
    
eql?(other)

Equivalent to String#eql?. Returns true if the class name and other have the same length and content, otherwise false.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name.eql?('BlogPost')  # => true
BlogPost.model_name.eql?('Blog Post') # => false
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 110
    
human(options={})

Transform the model name into a more humane format, using I18n. By default, it will underscore then humanize the class name.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name.human # => "Blog post"

Specify options with additional translating options.

# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 175
def human(options={})
  return @human unless @klass.respond_to?(:lookup_ancestors) &&
                       @klass.respond_to?(:i18n_scope)

  defaults = @klass.lookup_ancestors.map do |klass|
    klass.model_name.i18n_key
  end

  defaults << options[:default] if options[:default]
  defaults << @human

  options = { scope: [@klass.i18n_scope, :models], count: 1, default: defaults }.merge!(options.except(:default))
  I18n.translate(defaults.shift, options)
end
to_s()

Returns the class name.

class BlogPost
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BlogPost.model_name.to_s # => "BlogPost"
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 124
    
to_str()

Equivalent to to_s.
