One layout for entire apps


#1

Dear all,

I am still new in rails, and I realised that in rails each model has
its own layout/template located under layouts/

Now my question is, is it possible to have only one layout for the
entire apps instead of having separate one for each model? If so, is
there any guide I can read about it? Or could someone give me a hint
on how to do it

Thanks in advance

Joshua,

By default, Ruby on Rails will attempt to render the following layout
view.

  • /app/views/layouts/application.html.erb

This would match the ApplicationController naming.

Good luck!

Cheers,
Robby

You can also change the layout by calling layout ‘layout’ from the
controller class.
