How to easily set class-level defaults
I was reading “Eloquent Ruby” by Russ Olsen earlier this week, and got really excited when I came across a neat little way to create default values for classes.
Russ uses the example of a Document class:
These few lines of code get you both a getter and setter for your newly created “default_font” class method.
I’m not sure why that was so exciting to me ha, but I figured it might excite someone else out there just the same.
