How to access TextHelper from Lib?

I've written a class sitting in a file in the Lib directory and this class needs to use strip_tags from TextHelper. I've added

include ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper

to the class but Ruby complains that the method strip_tags doesn't exist. How can I access ActionView methods from a a class in Lib?

Are you trying to call strip_tags from a class or instance context?
If you want to add the helpers as class methods, instead use

     extend ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper
