I've got two console-related patches which I'd love to hear feedback on.
The first fixes link_to behavior on helper --
The second adds the ability to load app-level helpers by emulating the
`helper' syntax used in controllers --
>> helper :recipes
Will inject all of RecipesHelper's methods into the console helper
object. On console startup I have the patch attempting to load
ApplicationHelper and gracefully recovering if it's not found.
I'm using these patches and have found them helpful. Seen the "how do
I play with my custom helpers in the console" question asked enough,
as well. Finally: a post about it http://errtheblog.com/post/43
