Is there any way to override functions generated by a
use macro when those functions have NOT been tagged as
I’m tapped into a 3rd party package which does mostly what we want, but we need to do some tweaking of the return values to make things work with our particular stack.
The easiest solution is of course to define our own variant of the function under a different name, e.g.
defmodule OurModule do use Something def something_alternate(opts \\ ) do # custom stuff something(opts) end end
But it’s a bummer to not be able to avail ourselves of the nice interface in the 3rd party package, so I was wondering if it would be possible to somehow override the functions that it generates.
For example, maybe we could roll our own
defoverridable via something like this?
defmodule Wrapper do defmacro __using__(opts) do quote do use Something defoverridable Module.definitions_in(__MODULE__) end end
Curious if anyone has tried this or can offer words of wisdom before I try this out in the laboratory…
