deprecate_methods(target_module, *method_names)

Declare that a method has been deprecated.

module Fred
  extend self

  def aaa; end
  def bbb; end
  def ccc; end
  def ddd; end
  def eee; end
end

Using the default deprecator:

ActiveSupport::Deprecation.deprecate_methods(Fred, :aaa, bbb: :zzz, ccc: 'use Bar#ccc instead')
# => [:aaa, :bbb, :ccc]

Fred.aaa
# DEPRECATION WARNING: aaa is deprecated and will be removed from Rails 5.1. (called from irb_binding at (irb):10)
# => nil

Fred.bbb
# DEPRECATION WARNING: bbb is deprecated and will be removed from Rails 5.1 (use zzz instead). (called from irb_binding at (irb):11)
# => nil

Fred.ccc
# DEPRECATION WARNING: ccc is deprecated and will be removed from Rails 5.1 (use Bar#ccc instead). (called from irb_binding at (irb):12)
# => nil

Passing in a custom deprecator:

custom_deprecator = ActiveSupport::Deprecation.new('next-release', 'MyGem')
ActiveSupport::Deprecation.deprecate_methods(Fred, ddd: :zzz, deprecator: custom_deprecator)
# => [:ddd]

Fred.ddd
DEPRECATION WARNING: ddd is deprecated and will be removed from MyGem next-release (use zzz instead). (called from irb_binding at (irb):15)
# => nil

Using a custom deprecator directly:

custom_deprecator = ActiveSupport::Deprecation.new('next-release', 'MyGem')
custom_deprecator.deprecate_methods(Fred, eee: :zzz)
# => [:eee]

Fred.eee
DEPRECATION WARNING: eee is deprecated and will be removed from MyGem next-release (use zzz instead). (called from irb_binding at (irb):18)
# => nil
