ActionHelper ============ ActionHelper is a Rails plugin that allows you to create view helper modules for specific actions or templates, as opposed to the controller-wide helper facility Rails provides. Example ======= There are currently three ways to get action-specific helpers mixed in. module SuperHawtnessHelper end module ExampleSweetnessHelper end class ExampleController < ActionController::Base include ActionHelper helper SuperHawtnessHelper, :only => :hawtness def hawtness # Only this action will get SuperHawtnessHelper since the #helper call # above used the :only option. end def sweetness # This action will get ExampleSweetnessHelper because the name matches # the controller name and action name concatenated. end def supercool; action_helper ExampleSweetnessHelper # This action will get ExampleSweetnessHelper because it just said so. end end TODO ==== * Allow an action to declare what helper(s) it wants by name in addition to passing the module itself (same as Rails does). * Experiment with keying off the template name rather than the action (to deal with actions that might render alternate templates) * Build up a master module for each action so we're not doing so many extends on every request. * Get things self-contained so specs (including controller specs) run without a surrounding Rails app. Copyright (c) 2008 John D.
