strip_links(html) in a rake task


I would like to use the helper strip_links(html) in one of my rake task.

Is there anyway I can do that ? I've tried to look for solutions on Google with no success.

Thank you very much,


Write this code in some file in lib folder:

def helper   Helper.instance end

class Helper   include Singleton   include ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper end

then you can access your helper method in models and controllers (that way you could use it in rake tasks too i believe) using helper.strip_links

I don't know if its work in a rake task, but since rails 2.1, there is another way to to this :


Hope it will help

@Gabriel : Thanks so much! ApplicationController.helpers.strip_links worked fine in rake.

@Andrius : thanks for your answer (I haven't tried it, since Gabriel's is more simple).

Have a nice day! Pierre
