Ruby script / console and models

Is it possible to access models when your in the console ? It seems
like that is not possible and I need to create the classes within the
console. Am I doing something wrong ?

Stuart

After posting this question I went ahead and did some googling so I
found the parameters
NAME and DESCRIPTION but found I’m getting these errors:

C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\r4rmusic>ruby script/console NAME
Loading NAME environment.
C:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.4/lib/initializer.rb:168:in
`read’:Errno::ENOENT: No such file or
directory - ./script/…/config/…/config/…/config/environments/NAME.rb

C:\InstantRails\rails_apps\r4rmusic>ruby script/console DESCRIPTION
Loading DESCRIPTION environment.
C:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.4/lib/initializer.rb:168:in
`read’:Errno::ENOENT: No such file or
directory -
./script/…/config/…/config/…/config/environments/DESCRIPTION.rb

So now that I think I know how to access the models and controllers
from console, I seem to have a problem.
Any ideas ?

Yes its possible. Actually thats pretty much the main point of

script/console. In order to tell it what env you want to run in try
this:

$ script/console production

OR

$ script/console test

OR

$ script/console # this one will default to development env.

Then your models are just available in the console. Am I missing
something about your problem?

now i can add a new user . However the same goes for any methods that
maybe defined within that model. Those also seem to need to be
recreated in the console.

My assumption was that when entering console all controllers and
models (including the methods withing) would be immediately available.
So what am I doing wrong ?


$ script/console

require “app/models/user.rb”

My problem is that it seems within console the models are not
available immediately.
As an example I have a model name user.rb. Table is set up
accordingly. I’m connected to the database.
I open console and do:

abe = User.new

This won’t work as User is not recognized.
I’m forced to define the class again in the console.
class User
end
now i can add a new user . However the same goes for any methods that
maybe defined within that model. Those also seem to need to be
recreated in the console.
