Application_helper can "include" another helper?


#1

My “application_helper.rb” become to large.
I have basic functions that I use for all projects.
Is it possible to define thoses functions inside an external
“basic_helper.rb” and include it in “application_helper.rb” ?

Sure. Make your BasicHelper module and
include BasicHelper
in your application_helper.rb file. You’ll of course have to stick
basic_helper.rb in lib/ and require it in application_helper.rb

Not possible do to that without stick the helper file inside lib folder
?
I don’t like the lib folder. You need to restart the server to apply
change from lib folder.
In local this is easy but a bit boring, but online…
