'Wrong constant name name:stringController


#1

Hi Guys,
I’m totally new to RoR and have been using the following website as
reference

It works fine up until the part where i have to type the following into
Terminal.

script/generate scaffold event name:string budget:decimal

i get the following error

wrong constant name Name:stringController

I have followed only the actions set out in the above link, and it is a
fresh install of Leopard.

Can anyone help me find out where i’ve gone wrong… at such an early
stage!

Thanks again

Andy

Does this mean you haven’t update rails ? Leopard ships with 1.2.6
IIRC, and that article says it requires 2.0.2

I get the same error while using Aptana’s IDE with rails 2.0.2.

Does anyone have ideas about this? This problem is a big hinder to
development.

I’ve only just installed leopard, and then xcode 3.

following these commands from
(http://developer.apple.com/tools/developonrailsleopard.html) led me to
the above error message

sudo gem update --system
sudo gem install rails
sudo gem update rake
sudo gem update sqlite3-ruby
do start server script(script/server)
rails expenses
script/generate scaffold event name:string budget:decimal

  • wrong constant name Name:stringController

have i missed out an action?


#6

So I did a update and it says it updated rails, but there is no
difference when I run scaffold.

I don’t see that line anywhere on the referenced page…

rails expenses

OK, so you created a new project – before you did anything else
did you start the server to see if it ran “out of the box”? Or run
script/about? I’d do those first.

script/generate scaffold event name:string budget:decimal

  • wrong constant name Name:stringController

You also might updating your Rails version to something close to
current, create a new project with it, see if that basically runs, and
then try generating your scaffold.

So what’s the output of both of the above?

so I have been using Aptana Studio as an IDE. I am on Mac OS 10.5, so
I went to the terminal and typed in

“sudo gem update --system”

and let it run through the updates, and in the terminal i typed in
“rails expenses” and it worked and then i typed in “script/generate
scaffold events …” and I didnt get any errors. I hope this works for
others! :slight_smile:
