Rails: Invoking a view helper from the console

There are a few ways to access view helpers from the Rails console. The easiest way is the helper shortcut:

Copy
helper.translate 'i18n.string' helper.your_helper_method

If the desired helper renders a view template, you need this setup:

Copy
view_paths = Rails::Application::Configuration.new(Rails.root).paths["app/views"] av_helper = ActionView::Base.new(view_paths).extend YourHelperModule av_helper.your_helper_method

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
