Missing Template


#1

Hi,

I am trying to create a hello world application, where the controller
(Say) only has one action:

def hello
end

And the view, hello.rhtml, has

HELLO WORLD

. When I run it,
it says Missing template say/hello.html.erb in view path C:/
InstantRails/rails_apps/bob/app/views.

I put hello.rhtml (also tried .html.erb, same error) in that spot, but
it still gives the missing template error.

I appreciate your help!
Shelly

So you have the view template
C:/InstantRails/rails_apps/bob/app/views/say/hello.html.erb

and the view template looks like

HELLO WORLD

and the controller

C:/InstantRails/rails_apps/bob/app/controllers/say_controller.rb

and the controller looks like

class SayController < ApplicationController
def hello
end
end

and you’re still getting an error?

yes, that’s what I have…

These are the steps I would take to set up that app.

In the terminal window:

$ rails bob

$ cd bob

/bob$ script/generate controller Say hello (this will set up the empty
hello method in the Say controller and hello.html.erb)

/bob$ script/server

Open the hello.html.erb template and change the contents to

Hello,
World!

Open a browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000/say/hello

Hope this helps.
