Testing Named Routes in the Rails Console

include ActionController::UrlWriter
default_url_options[:host] = 'whatever'

Then you can call your named route methods directly from the console.

I’ve always just worked around this by trying it out in the templates. Should keep looking things up on google. I learn much more that way. Anyway, thought the rest of you should know also.
