This is a weird one. I just started making a new app, and have noticed
a weird problem: I do my editing in gedit in linux, which saves backup
files as ‘~’, eg “index.html.erb~” for a view template.
I’m running mongrel, and when i refresh a page it’s loading the backup
view file in preference to the ‘proper’ file! If there’s no backup then
it loads the proper file. I can’t work out why it’s doing this - does
anyone have any ideas?
