I've got a couple of helper functions in my application_helper file that I would like to run from the console (for debugging). What is the correct way to invoke a helper from the console? _Kevin

I've got a similar question - I want to run a method defined in ApplicationHelper on the console, but using helper.method() doesn't work. Should it? Thanks, Simon On 24 May 2006 17:07:56 -0000, Kevin O.

load 'application_helper.rb' and then just call the functions in the module. If you make changes to the file, just retype the line. Cheers Nic

normally, you cannot run helpers or controllers through rails console; however, you can add this by editing the console script and added the following line: require File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/../config/environment.rb" after the line that requires boot.rb I found this out from http://rails.techno-weenie.net/question/2006/7/19/... The link is about backgroundrb, but the premise is the same. Jason
