Cloud9 not creating files and directories the rails command should create

I’m sorry if the following question has been asked before but I wasn’t
to find the answer.

I’ve just started going through Michael H.'s Ruby on Rails Tutorial
Ed.) and hit a brick wall straight out of the gate. I’m trying to run
‘rails 4.2.0 new hello_app’ command to create the first application in
Cloud9 IDE as instructed in Listing 1.3: Running rails new (with a
version number) It
successfully ran the bundle install command for me and the results
displayed were comparable to Hartl’s book but it didn’t create any
promised file structure as shown in (Figure 1.4)
I tried refreshing the File Tree in Cloud9 and even running the command
again which resulted in some overwriting but it didn’t change
anything. Please let me know if I am missing something or doing

You must either be in the wrong directory or it’s a Cloud9 issue. If you
to terminal, are the files there?

Hi Chris, thanks for your response. No file tree from the terminal
[email protected]:~ $ cd workspace
[email protected]:~/workspace $ ls
[email protected]:~/workspace $

I’m an idiot. This was now resolved. Thanks Scott.

Sure looks like you’re running rails new in ~/, then looking in

We all go down a path like that once in a while :wink:

Especially when first learning a new system and trying to keep so many
things straight at once…
