Naming convention

Hi, all.

When invoking scaffolding such as:

$ rails g scaffold Post title:string description:text

what is permissible or is there a list of words that can be used in
place of Post?

I know you can use Article, Store, etc but what other options are there?
I’m looking for a static page a bit like http://getbootstrap.com as
I’m attempting a company web site/personal page.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,

Phil (who’s very new to Rails).

You’re creating a model – other than adhering to the Rails
conventions
(http://guides.rubyonrails.org/active_record_basics.html#naming-conventions)
(and avoiding reserved words) it’s up to you.

I’m looking for a static page

If you’re only creating a static page, you don’t need a model – just
create a controller and a view.

Hi, Hassan.

Thanks, that’s a great help. I’m new to Rails & am spending most of my
time searching for basic stuff. I guess reading the guides at Ruby on
Rails is the first place to start.

Cheers,

Phil…

Also work right through a good tutorial such as railstutorial.org
(which is free to use online). That will show you the basics of
rails.

Thanks for that, Colin.

I’ve also subscribed to Rails Cast Pro which is pretty good.

I’m really enjoying Rails. Long may it continue so…

I also suggest sticking round here, make sure that for any posts that
you understand the question, that you also understand the answer. It
is a great way of learning, and in particular learning about aspects
that you did not even know existed.
