Importance_2
attribute_method_suffix(*suffixes) public

Declares a method available for all attributes with the given suffix. Uses method_missing and respond_to? to rewrite the method.

#{attr}#{suffix}(*args, &block)

to

attribute#{suffix}(#{attr}, *args, &block)

An attribute#{suffix} instance method must exist and accept at least the attr argument.

For example:

class Person

  include ActiveModel::AttributeMethods
  attr_accessor :name
  attribute_method_suffix '_short?'
  define_attribute_methods [:name]

  private

  def attribute_short?(attr)
    send(attr).length < 5
  end
end

person = Person.new
person.name = "Bob"
person.name          # => "Bob"
person.name_short?   # => true
