We’ve already covered a lot of ground, so we’re going to change gears and talk about helpers. In short, helpers are functions we can use from anywhere that do things for us quicker or more efficiently than we could otherwise do. It’s tricky to explain their use without looking at code, so that’s what we’re going to do.
These helpers are available, globally, so you won’t need to import most of them. I’ll tell you what the exceptions are, when it’s important.
