GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING INTO OTHER GIANT ROBOTS

Time.now Is On My Side

I needed an open? method. First try:

def open?
  opens_at < Time.now < closes_at
end

However, Ruby doesn’t support that kind of expression. Second try:

def open?
  (opens_at < Time.now) && (Time.now < closes_at)
end

It’s noisy and lacks expression. Third time’s a charm:

def open?
  Time.now.between?(opens_at, closes_at)
end

Ship it.
