Paginator gem


#1

Not sure if the is the right place to ask about gems; point me to the
right place if this is not.

I installed the paginator (1.1.0) gem but my application can’t seem to
find it. I’m getting:

NameError in NodeController#index

uninitialized constant Paginator

RAILS_ROOT: /home/wucolin/src/netmap-rails
Application Trace | Framework Trace | Full Trace

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.0.2/lib/active_support/

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.0.2/lib/active_support/

Here’s the gem list output:

Is there a better way to paginate than this gem?

Thanks.


#2

did you add this to youtr initializers/environment.rb?
require ‘paginator’

Generally i yould suggest to rather use the will_paginate plugin …


#3

Shouldn’t the gem installer do this?

I decided to give paginating_find a shot. So far it’s working great.
