Can't see documentation after executing "rake appdoc"


#1

I successfully got rake appdoc to work on the depot application (after
manually applying the patch for rake 0.70).

Everything appears to generate fine, but I can’t pull up the
documentation in my browser.

I’ve tried:

http://localhost:3000/doc/app/
http://localhost:3000/doc/app/index.html

I always get:

Recognition failed for “/doc/app/”

with “ActionController: Exception caught” in the title

My guess is that RoR is looking for a “doc” controller here.

Is this a routing problem?
Do I need to tell RoR that “doc” is not a controller???

This is really irritating - I can’t find any information on what you
should expect to be able to see in the browser after a successful “rake
appdoc”

Thanks,
Wes

Maybe I’m just supposed to pull up index.html as a file and go from
there?

I was assuming that Rails would know what to do with a “doc” request.

Wes-

there is no default way to view those docs from within your rails

application. You are supposed to just open the index.html in your
docs folder as a file from your local filesystem. Or if you want to
view them from your rails app make a copy of the docs directory into
your public directory. then you can view them through your app like
this:

http://localhost:3000/docs/
