Shortly before our winter break, I ran into the following error message while updating a mailer:
(object doesn't support #inspect)
Here’s the code:
def notify mail( from: 'me@...', to: 'me+testing@...', subject: 'it works', body: 'hello world', ).deliver_now end end
notify has some expectations for how it should be used. Specifically, it’s expected to return a mail object.
deliver_now is a method you can call on a mail object, and doesn’t return a mail object. Attaching that
deliver_now to the
mail() meant that
notify was no longer returning a mail object.
Solution: return the expected object. I kicked out the
deliver_now and made sure
notifyreturned a mail object, then delivered that mail object:
Problem solved, mail created and delivered.
