Failing to render RJS


#1

My code looks like the following, but for some reason the rjs template
(index.js.erb) is not being rendered. I’ve also tried naming the rjs
file index.js.rjs with no luck.

home_controller.rb:

def index
respond_to do |format|
format.js
format.html
end
end

index.js.erb:

page << “var data = ‘Core
Selectors,Attributes,Traversing,Manipulation’.split(’,’);”
page << “$(’#example’).autocomplete(data);”

How does rails decide when to render an rjs file in addition to an html
file?

What does the thing making the request look like ?(index.js.erb will
never work, since it will just try and pass that file through erb even
though that file isn’t an erb template at all)

You need to rename it to index.js.rjs. Check in firebug then if you
get response.
