# I created a generic Rails like ApplicationController so that you can just
# run this code via a command line prompt without the need for Rails
 
 
module Recorder
def self.included(base)
base.send(:before_filter, :some_method)
base.send(:after_filter, :another_method)
end
def initialize
super
#self references the instance of the UsersController class
@model_class = self.class
puts @model_class # UsersController
end
def some_method
puts 'from before filter method'
puts @model_class # UsersController
end
def another_method
puts 'from after filter method'
puts @model_class # UsersController
end
end
 
class ApplicationController
 
#stubbing out some stuff
@@before_filters = []
@@after_filters = []
def self.before_filter(method)
@@before_filters << method
end
def self.after_filter(method)
@@after_filters << method
end
def run(filter)
self.class.class_variable_get(('@@'+filter).intern).each do |method|
send(method)
end
end
include Recorder
end
 
class UsersController < ApplicationController; end
 
 
controller = UsersController.new
 
controller.run("before_filters")
 
controller.run("after_filters")

The stubbing thingies shades the purpose of this class, to teach how to include, is not newbie friendly :(
I would sacrifice the ability to run via command line prompt for the sake of clarity.
