Use Time.zone.parse outside of Rails

Hi guys,

I am trying to use an ActiveRecord function in a Ruby script, and I can’t get it to work. I am using ActiceRecord 3.2.8.

require ‘active_support/all’

Time.zone.parse(“2012-10-20”)

NoMethodError: undefined method `parse’ for nil:NilClass

from (irb):2

from /Users/pjj/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p320/bin/irb:16:in `<main>'

Time.zone.parse works absolutely fine in a Rails console.

I am not sure what step I am missing. What is Rails doing to let us use this function directly?

Thanks a lot

PJ

Setting Time.zone to a value so it's not nil :slight_smile:
