Loading a helper that generates a load error gives a confusing error message

Reported by jmoses | March 6th, 2011 @ 01:54 AM

If you have a helper that require's a file that doesn't exist, you get an error message that is confusing, and wrong.

file: app/helpers/example_helper.rb

require 'md5'
module ExampleHelper

will generate an error like:

/Users/jmoses/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p136@gemset/gems/activesupport-3.0.4/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:304:in rescue in depend_on': Missing helper file helpers/md5.rb (LoadError) from /Users/jmoses/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p136@shotrunner/gems/activesupport-3.0.4/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:299:independ_on'

Where the 'md5' above is replaced by whatever file can't be found. It's confusing, and incorrect, it should either bubble the load error up, or indicate there's an error in that particular helper.
