plugin structure sorta thing. Use inherited to concatenate all plugins to a library in a Plugins constant in said library.
class Library Plugins =  def initialize#(...) Plugins.each do |plugin| # Here you can run a certain class method or grab some data from each class end end # ... end
class LibraryPlugin # ... def self.inherited(sub); Library::Plugins << sub; end end
class LibraryFooer < LibraryPlugin end class LibraryBarer < LibraryPlugin end
Library::Plugins.inspect #=> [LibraryFooer, LibraryBarer]
