ruby sinatra helper

In Ruby, a Sinatra helper is a method that can be used to perform specific tasks within a Sinatra web application. Here are the steps to create and use a Sinatra helper:

  1. Define the helper method within the Sinatra application class using the helpers keyword:
helpers do
  def my_helper_method
    # Helper method logic here
  1. Inside the helpers block, define the method that encapsulates the desired functionality. This method can then be called from within the routes or views of the Sinatra application.

  2. Call the helper method within a route handler or a view:

get '/example' do
  result = my_helper_method
  # Use the result or perform further actions

By following these steps, you can create and use a helper method in a Sinatra application to encapsulate reusable functionality and keep your code organized.
