SimplyHelpful was a plugin used in legacy rails apps for generating the right dom id, css classes for records. For more info read However, Simplyhelpful is now in rails. So you will no longer need the plugin. And methods like dom_id are available out of the box now. Just get the scoping correct.


To give a specific example, for the dom_id method, usages may have been in helpers or views, and in that case you may get errors where Rails starts looking for dom_id method under ActionView. You will have to fix this. You need the RecordIdentifier module of ActionController.
