Helper methods in coffescript files

Hi, I was wondering if there is a way to make helper methods available
in my .coffe files, Im trying to generate a graph from some userdata
with a javascript library, and with the new asset pipeline I can
append .erb so its users.js.coffe.erb which works just great, but I
need some way to get the current_user helper method.. help ?

I am not sure this is such a good idea. Your js, ideally, will be concatenated and compressed and cached. Anything variable ought to be in the HTML, since that changes more frequently, and your js should simply look for the variable within the page and act upon it in the DOM.



apart from the fact, that it might not be a good idea in terms of performance …

Is it possible? I am trying the same.

Best regards


you can do

first it will be processed by ERB then CoffeeScript

Hi Noel,

thanks - the question is concerning helper methods. How can I use helper methods in the asset pipeline?

Best regards
