How does ruby on rails dynamically define `find_by_id`, `find_by_name` methods?

seems to work fine This is the power of meta programmation in Ruby, and more specifically the method_missing method: https://ruby-doc.org/core-2.1.0/BasicObject.html#method-i-method_missing
When you call a method on an instance of a Class that is not defined in that class, the method_missing catches it and you can handle it there.

How can I dynamically define Object methods inside Ruby modules?

Tag : ruby , By : Steve

I think the issue was by ths following , In your first example, you try to use undefined variable 'logger', as you can see from error message. Try to use the logger feature this way:
ActiveRecord::Base.logger = Logger.new(STDOUT)

fixed the issue. Will look into that further find_by_name is an ActiveRecord class method. (See the Active Record Query Interface Guide) You are invoking it like an instance method.
Try changing this:
def role?(role)
    return !!self.role.find_by_name(role.to_s.camelize)
def role?(role_name)
    return self.role.present? && self.role.name == role_name.to_s

Define class methods dynamically in Rails

With these it helps It is not completely clear to me what you want to achieve. If you want to call a method, you naturally have to define it first (as long as ActiveRecord does not handle this). You could do something like this:
class MyClass
  class << self
    def method_missing(m, *args, &block)  
      match = m.to_s.match(/find_by_school([0-9]+)_id/)
      if match

puts MyClass.find_by_school1_id
puts MyClass.find_by_school2_id
puts MyClass.find_by_school22_id
puts MyClass.find_by_school_id

Any of those help The key here is to use class_eval to open up the class you are calling denormalizable_collection on.
A simplified example is:
class Foo
  def self.make_method(name)
    class_eval do |klass|
      klass.define_singleton_method(name) do


irb(main):043:0> Foo.hello
=> :hello
module DenormalizableCollection
  def self.included(base)
    base.extend ClassMethods

  module ClassMethods
    def denormalizable_collection(*actions)
      actions.each do |action|
    def generate_denormalized_methods(action)

      self.class_eval do |klass|
        # you should consider if these should be instance methods instead.
        # define News.most_popular
        define_singleton_method "#{action}" do
          collection = Redis.current.get(send("#{action}_key"))
          return [] unless collection.present?
          JSON.parse(collection).map { |h| DenormalizedHash.new(h) }
        # define News.most_popular
        # define News.set_most_popular
        define_singleton_method "set_#{action}" do
          Redis.current.set(send("#{action}_key"), send("#{action}_data").to_json)
        # define News.most_popular_data, which is a method that returns an array of hashes
        define_singleton_method "#{action}_data" do
          raise NotImplementedError, "#{action}_data is required"
        # define News.most_popular_key, the index key to use inside of redis
        define_singleton_method "#{action}_key" do

    def generate_callbacks(action)
      self.class_eval do
        # Since callbacks call instance methods you have to pass a
        # block if you want to call a class method instead
        after_commit -> { self.class.send("set_#{action}") }
        after_destroy -> { self.class.send("set_#{action}") }

    def generate_instance_methods(action)
      class_eval do
        define_method :a_test_method do
          # ...
