Rendering View output to a file

I want to generate a set of static HTML pages for uploading to a site.
Is there a simple way to get a Controller/View to render to a file or
directory, suitable for uploading?

I know I could fire up the server, render the page and save it from a
browser, but that would be tedious after the first dozen or so pages…

TIA.

Or just use wget in “spider” mode to crawl and retrieve the whole set
with one command :slight_smile:

You could use page caching. That would output files to tmp/cache

You might want to look into how StaticMatic does this (though I believe
it’s build on Merb, not Rails). If StaticMatic itself is not suitable
for your purposes, its build script may have useful ideas.
