Month name helper passing month number for Rails

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

I couldn’t find a helper in the API to just display months if you’re storing them as numbers (1-12) so I made one.
Add this helper code to your application_helper.rb or other appropriate *_helper.rb file.

def monthname(monthnumber)
if monthnumber
Date::MONTHNAMES[monthnumber]
end
end

Use it in your view like this:

< %=h monthname(item.month) %>


I've left the country and this site is just an archive! Check out my trip blog!
