Ruby on Rails latest stable (v4.2.7) - 1 note - Class: Inflector

Method deprecated or moved

This method is deprecated or moved on the latest stable version. The last existing version (v2.1.0) is shown here.

These similar methods exist in v4.2.7:

classify(table_name) public

Create a class name from a plural table name like Rails does for table names to models. Note that this returns a string and not a Class. (To convert to an actual class follow classify with constantize.)


  "egg_and_hams".classify # => "EggAndHam"
  "posts".classify        # => "Post"

Singular names are not handled correctly:

  "business".classify     # => "Busines"
