Hello, Can somebody help me on how to open a file and show it on a text area, and be able to edit it and save it again. Thanks,

in ruby there is the class File: http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/classes/File.html to get the contents of your file try something like: my_file = File.new(path_to_file, 'r') @my_file_content = my_file.read my_file.close now you can show your content inside the text area (you should know how to build a simple form for it). after editing it, back in your controller write the updated contents to the file: updated_content = params[:whatever] my_file = File.new(path_to_file, 'w') my_file.write(updated_content) my_file.close
