Stubbing controller methods in a helper test

Posted by Curtis Miller Curtis Miller

I hadn't created any tests of helper methods in Rspec until last week. Doing so I found that one of my helpers was invoking the restful_authentication logged_in? method. This probably isn't a big thing, but I was unsure how to stub the logged_in? method, that is, how to get the controller context to be able to invoke the stub! method. What I learned from a colleague was that the context of the controller in a helper test is self.
