compact_blank()

Returns a new Array without the blank items. Uses Object#blank? for determining if an item is blank.

[1, "", nil, 2, " ", [], {}, false, true].compact_blank
# =>  [1, 2, true]

Set.new([nil, "", 1, 2])
# => [2, 1] (or [1, 2])

When called on a Hash, returns a new Hash without the blank values.

{ a: "", b: 1, c: nil, d: [], e: false, f: true }.compact_blank
#=> { b: 1, f: true }
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 165
def compact_blank
  reject(&:blank?)
end
exclude?(object)

The negative of the Enumerable#include?. Returns true if the collection does not include the object.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 113
def exclude?(object)
  !include?(object)
end
excluding(*elements)

Returns a copy of the enumerable excluding the specified elements.

["David", "Rafael", "Aaron", "Todd"].excluding "Aaron", "Todd"
# => ["David", "Rafael"]

["David", "Rafael", "Aaron", "Todd"].excluding %w[ Aaron Todd ]
# => ["David", "Rafael"]

{foo: 1, bar: 2, baz: 3}.excluding :bar
# => {foo: 1, baz: 3}
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 127
def excluding(*elements)
  elements.flatten!(1)
  reject { |element| elements.include?(element) }
end
including(*elements)

Returns a new array that includes the passed elements.

[ 1, 2, 3 ].including(4, 5)
# => [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ]

["David", "Rafael"].including %w[ Aaron Todd ]
# => ["David", "Rafael", "Aaron", "Todd"]
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 107
def including(*elements)
  to_a.including(*elements)
end
index_by()

Convert an enumerable to a hash keying it by the block return value.

people.index_by(&:login)
# => { "nextangle" => <Person ...>, "chade-" => <Person ...>, ...}

people.index_by { |person| "#{person.first_name} #{person.last_name}" }
# => { "Chade- Fowlersburg-e" => <Person ...>, "David Heinemeier Hansson" => <Person ...>, ...}
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 54
def index_by
  if block_given?
    result = {}
    each { |elem| result[yield(elem)] = elem }
    result
  else
    to_enum(:index_by) { size if respond_to?(:size) }
  end
end
index_with(default = INDEX_WITH_DEFAULT)

Convert an enumerable to a hash keying it with the enumerable items and with the values returned in the block.

post = Post.new(title: "hey there", body: "what's up?")

%i( title body ).index_with { |attr_name| post.public_send(attr_name) }
# => { title: "hey there", body: "what's up?" }
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 70
def index_with(default = INDEX_WITH_DEFAULT)
  if block_given?
    result = {}
    each { |elem| result[elem] = yield(elem) }
    result
  elsif default != INDEX_WITH_DEFAULT
    result = {}
    each { |elem| result[elem] = default }
    result
  else
    to_enum(:index_with) { size if respond_to?(:size) }
  end
end
many?()

Returns true if the enumerable has more than 1 element. Functionally equivalent to enum.to_a.size > 1. Can be called with a block too, much like any?, so people.many? { |p| p.age > 26 } returns true if more than one person is over 26.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 88
def many?
  cnt = 0
  if block_given?
    any? do |element|
      cnt += 1 if yield element
      cnt > 1
    end
  else
    any? { (cnt += 1) > 1 }
  end
end
pluck(*keys)

Convert an enumerable to an array based on the given key.

[{ name: "David" }, { name: "Rafael" }, { name: "Aaron" }].pluck(:name)
# => ["David", "Rafael", "Aaron"]

[{ id: 1, name: "David" }, { id: 2, name: "Rafael" }].pluck(:id, :name)
# => [[1, "David"], [2, "Rafael"]]
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 144
def pluck(*keys)
  if keys.many?
    map { |element| keys.map { |key| element[key] } }
  else
    map { |element| element[keys.first] }
  end
end
sum(identity = nil, &block)

Calculates a sum from the elements.

payments.sum { |p| p.price * p.tax_rate }
payments.sum(&:price)

The latter is a shortcut for:

payments.inject(0) { |sum, p| sum + p.price }

It can also calculate the sum without the use of a block.

[5, 15, 10].sum # => 30
['foo', 'bar'].sum # => "foobar"
[[1, 2], [3, 1, 5]].sum # => [1, 2, 3, 1, 5]

The default sum of an empty list is zero. You can override this default:

[].sum(Payment.new(0)) { |i| i.amount } # => Payment.new(0)
# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 37
def sum(identity = nil, &block)
  if identity
    _original_sum_with_required_identity(identity, &block)
  elsif block_given?
    map(&block).sum(identity)
  else
    inject(:+) || 0
  end
end
without(*elements)

Alias for excluding.

# File activesupport/lib/active_support/core_ext/enumerable.rb, line 133
def without(*elements)
  excluding(*elements)
end
