spec_helper not working in test

$ bin/rspec spec/features/todo_items/create_spec.rb

todo/spec/spec_helper.rb:22:in block in <top (required)>': uninitialized constant RailsDomIdHelper (NameError) from /.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core.rb:154:inconfigure'

not sure what is going on but the test seems to fail

Because there's a reference to RailsDomIdHelper, I'm curious if you forgot to make line 16 in app/views/todo_lists/index.html.erb read:

<tr id="<%= dom_id(todo_list) %>">
