HelpEngine

Hello!

Is anybody out there using the HelpEngine vendor plugin that’s
mentioned at http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/helpengine?

I am running into problems after I follow the README of the plugin for
installing into my project where it mentions adding the following to
config/environment.rb:

Engines.start :help

Here are the first few steps of HelpEngine’s README.

== Installation

  1. Create your Rails application, set up your databases, grab the
    Engines plugin, and install it. For the official installation
    instructions, head on over to rails-engines.org, or use the command:

    ruby script/plugin install
    http://svn.rails-engines.org/plugins/engines/

  2. Get the HelpEngine and install it into your vendor/plugins
    directory. You can use the built-in plugin installation command:

    ruby script/plugin install svn://rubyforge.org//var/svn/helpengine

  3. Modify your Engines.start call in config/environment.rb

    Engines.start :help

  4. Edit your application.rb file so it looks something like the
    following:

    class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
    include HelpEngine
    end

  5. Edit your application_helper.rb file:

    module ApplicationHelper
    include HelpHelper
    end
    {/snip}

When I add the line mentioned on step 3 above, my script/server
results in the following output:

I’m using Ruby 1.8.6-p-111 and Rails 2.1.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
