require dependency on siblings

asked 2016-02-18 07:24:35 -0500

From reading it was my understanding that in the following case, bar would require foo, and that bar would be enacted before foo.

class blah { require foo include bar }

Can anyone help with what I'm missing here?

With what you have, anything in class foo would be applied before anything further down in class blah and things in class bar would get applied at some point, though not in any particular order.

So - from what I understand here "anything further down in class blah" would include bar, so everything in foo should be applied before anything in bar? This isn't what I'm seeing take place.

No, include bar means "make sure the resources in class bar are included in the catalog somewhere." Require foo only orders the resources in foo relative to *resources* in class blah, not any other class includes because those resources belong to a different class.

What you have to understand about classes is that they are merely tags on resources, so when you require foo, you're saying "Apply all resources tagged foo before any resources tagged blah." Including bar does not order resources tagged bar with respect to either foo or blah resources.
