Grouping Controllers into Modules - Doesn't work!?

Ok, what I want to achieve is:


calls app/controllers/admin/products_controller.rb

According to Agile Development with Rails this should work.

I executed the follwing commands:

rails myproj
cd myproj
script/generate controller Admin
script/generate scaffold Admin::Product

this creates app/controllers/admin/products_controller.rb all the views
& Product model, but doesnt actually route.

http:///admin/products just gives me:

Unknown action
No action responded to product

Any ideas?

You (probably) can’t have admin controller, because it’s the name of
your group.
If you want all your admin controllers have some common functionality,
you can create admin_base controller (its name has to be different than
‘admin’) and inherit all your admin controllers from this one.

I don’t know if there’s any difference, but you can do Admin/Product
instead of Admin::Product.

I am trying to do the same thing, but I am not sure I want urls to
look like: /admin/base/index
Are there any decent alternatives?

You can edit your routes.rb to make your urls look any way you want.
