Getting RefineryCMS’ Asset Pipeline to Work With Heroku

The Problem

RefineryCMS’ assets somehow use the Rails URL helpers, which causes rake assets:precompile to throw error, which looks something like this:

Heroku Error
-----> Preparing app for Rails asset pipeline
       Running: rake assets:precompile
       rake aborted!
       undefined method `admin_dialogs_path' for #<Module:0x00000006d06708>
       (in /tmp/build_13ex2hfe5y1g5/vendor/bundle/ruby/1.9.1/gems/refinerycms-core-2.0.5/app/assets/javascripts/refinery/boot_wym.js.erb)

Hello World
