when i try to integrate rails-api with devise, it show an error like this

/Users/bobbyadiprabowo/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p180@kulinr-rails-api/gems/devise-2.0.4/lib/devise/controllers/helpers.rb:8:in block in <module:Helpers>': undefined methodhelper_method' for ActionController::API:Class (NoMethodError)

maybe helper_method is not included in ActionController::API:Class

@tigaenamb you're right, helper_method is not included in API, and it's because we don't need it as we're not using helpers and rendering templates. I think this should be handled by devise, to not call helper_method if it does not respond to it. Another solution would be to have a stub implementation of helper_method just to ignore such errors.

Thanks for reporting.

@tigaenamb I've just merged an addition to the Compatibility module that adds a stub helper_method, should work fine for now. Could you give it a try bundling from master? Thanks.
