Spaces in between brackets


#1

Can anyone explain to me why the code works:

<input id=“recipe_title” name=“recipe[title]”

While this code doesn’t:

<input id=“recipe_title” name=“recipe[ title ]”

I know that most people don’t put spaces in between brackets, however I
like to for readability. It seems like I can do this everywhere in Ruby
and Rails except for the name of html tag. Any thoughts on why this is?

And " title " != “title”

But, for the future, you would do better to direct Rails questions
to the Rails mailing list.

I don’t know. Seems like he got his question answered pretty well on
this list.

Yeah, well, it happens. (And this was one of those unintuitive Rails
things that bit me, too, so I’m sympathetic.)

Thanks for the help, I will move over to the rails list from now on.

We need to tell those rails core folks about #strip. And, #strip! is
very fast.
