How to get a list of all the switches for: rails new

I want to learn all the possible options when doing:

rails new

Is there a way to output them?


Just type:

$ rails new --help

rails new APP_PATH [options]

-r, [–ruby=PATH] # Path to the Ruby binary of your
# Default:
-b, [–builder=BUILDER] # Path to a application builder (can be
filesystem path or URL)
-m, [–template=TEMPLATE] # Path to an application template (can
a filesystem path or URL)
[–skip-gemfile] # Don’t create a Gemfile
[–skip-bundle] # Don’t run bundle install
-G, [–skip-git] # Skip Git ignores and keeps
-O, [–skip-active-record] # Skip Active Record files
-S, [–skip-sprockets] # Skip Sprockets files
-d, [–database=DATABASE] # Preconfigure for selected database
# Default: sqlite3
-j, [–javascript=JAVASCRIPT] # Preconfigure for selected JavaScript
# Default: jquery
-J, [–skip-javascript] # Skip JavaScript files
[–dev] # Setup the application with Gemfile
pointing to your Rails checkout
[–edge] # Setup the application with Gemfile
pointing to Rails repository
-T, [–skip-test-unit] # Skip Test::Unit files
[–old-style-hash] # Force using old style hash (:foo =>
‘bar’) on Ruby >= 1.9

Runtime options:
-f, [–force] # Overwrite files that already exist
-p, [–pretend] # Run but do not make any changes
-q, [–quiet] # Supress status output
-s, [–skip] # Skip files that already exist

Rails options:
-h, [–help] # Show this help message and quit
-v, [–version] # Show Rails version number and quit

The ‘rails new’ command creates a new Rails application with a
directory structure and configuration at the path you specify.


rails new ~/Code/Ruby/weblog

This generates a skeletal Rails installation in ~/Code/Ruby/weblog.
See the README in the newly created application to get going.
