Rails view sub directories?


#1

Can anyone show me how to go about placing specific views within a
directory?

ie:

controllers/hello.rb
views/hello/english/world.rhtml
views/hello/english/people.rhtml
views/hello/spanish/mundo.rhtml
views/hello/spanish/gente.rhtml

instead of the usual:

controllers/hello.rb
views/hello/world.rhtml
views/hello/mundo.rhtml

hello.rb currently contains the basic methods:

class ChartsController < ApplicationController
def world
render_text(“hello world”)
end
def mundo
render_text(“hola mundo”)
end
def people
render_text(“hello people”)
end
def gente
render_text(“hola gente”)
end
end

Ideally, It would contain sub methods or something similiar I would
htink :-
class ChartsController < ApplicationController
def english
def world
render_text(“hello world”)
end
def people
render_text(“hello people”)
end
end
def spanish
def mundo
render_text(“hola mundo”)
end
def gente
render_text(“hola gente”)
end
end
end

The whole goal is to logically group the items within a specific view,
as well as allow them to be access via:
localhost/hello/spanish/world

Any ideas? TIA

This is somewhat off-topic for this list. Try the ruby on rails list:

Also, for your question, you might be able to modify:

to suit your needs.
