Rails autoload paths

Today I learned that I can see Rails autoload_paths running:

puts ActiveSupport::Dependencies.autoload_paths
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/business
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/channels
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/controllers
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/controllers/concerns
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/jobs
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/mailers
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/models
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/models/concerns
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/serializers
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/app/services
/Users/vnegrisolo/projects/my-rails-app/test/mailers/previews

You can always add more paths with:

# config/application.rb
config.autoload_paths << Rails.root.join('lib')

By the way, that’s why concerns (model/controller) do not have Concern as namespace.
