module ActionController
# The \Rails framework provides a large number of helpers for working with assets, dates, forms,
# numbers and model objects, to name a few. These helpers are available to all templates
# by default.
#
# In addition to using the standard template helpers provided, creating custom helpers to
# extract complicated logic or reusable functionality is strongly encouraged. By default, each controller
# will include all helpers.
#
# In previous versions of \Rails the controller will include a helper whose
# name matches that of the controller, e.g., <tt>MyController</tt> will automatically
# include <tt>MyHelper</tt>. To return old behavior set +config.action_controller.include_all_helpers+ to +false+.
#
# Additional helpers can be specified using the +helper+ class method in ActionController::Base or any
# controller which inherits from it.
#
# ==== Examples
# The +to_s+ method from the \Time class can be wrapped in a helper method to display a custom message if
# a \Time object is blank:
#
# module FormattedTimeHelper
# def format_time(time, format=:long, blank_message="&nbsp;")
# time.blank? ? blank_message : time.to_s(format)
# end
# end
#
# FormattedTimeHelper can now be included in a controller, using the +helper+ class method:
#
# class EventsController < ActionController::Base
# helper FormattedTimeHelper
# def index
# @events = Event.all
# end
# end
#
# Then, in any view rendered by <tt>EventController</tt>, the <tt>format_time</tt> method can be called:
#
# <% @events.each do |event| -%>
# <p>
# <%= format_time(event.time, :short, "N/A") %> | <%= event.name %>
# </p>
# <% end -%>
#
# Finally, assuming we have two event instances, one which has a time and one which does not,
# the output might look like this:

# following adds new +name+ and <tt>name=</tt> instance methods to a
# controller and makes them available to the view:
# attr_accessor :name
# helper_attr :name

# * <tt>attrs</tt> - Names of attributes to be converted into helpers.
