Routing Error

hello there,
im willy, i just trying use ruby for first time
a have problem when i make directory,

i follow the video tutor from M. Hartl , i can open the localhost:3000
but when i go deeper and make directory D:\RailsInstaller\toy_app\app\views\users

i open localhost:3000/users and show like this

No route matches [GET] “/Users”

Rails.root: D:/RailsInstaller/toy_app


any advice ?

sry bad english

It looks like you created a view folder but do not have a controller action or route to match. You’ll want to setup a route on config/routes.rb to match a controller action. The tutorial should walk you through this but you can also see the routing guide in the rails guides on

hai , when i wanna open localhost:3000/toy_app
show like this

its my routes
Rails.application.routes.draw do
get ‘toyapp/index’

resources :users

it’s my toyapp_controller
class ToyappController < ApplicationController
def index

gem file
source ‘

What happens if you open localhost:3000


Hello Colin

its show ruby welcome aboard

Welcome aboard
You’re riding Ruby on Rails!
About your application’s environment

i’m using windows 7,


When you run rails s it starts the server for the app in that folder,
so the welcome aboard page is coming from that app.


yes it working when i wanna just localhost:3000
but when i wanna open dir app …app/view/users

thats gonna show

Showing D:/RailsInstaller/toy_app/app/views/layouts/application.html.erb where line #5 raised:

TypeError: Object doesn’t support this property or method

Rails.root: D:/RailsInstaller/toy_app

any advice ?

i follow the instruction ruby on capter toyapp

Which version of rail (rails -v) and ruby (ruby -v) are you using and
which versions does the tutorial expect?

Also copy/paste the offending file
(app/views/layouts/application.html.erb) here.


rails version 4.2.5
ruby version 2.1.5p273 (2014-11-13 revision 48405)
tutorial suggest rails v is 4.2.0

here the app/views/layouts/application.html.erb

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <%= stylesheet_link_tag 'application', media: 'all',
'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
  <%= javascript_include_tag 'application', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
  <%= csrf_meta_tags %>

<%= yield %>


Kindly regards
Willy Wang

hai Colin

it's can be work now, with remove the JS script

  <%= stylesheet_link_tag 'application', media: 'all',
'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>
  <%= javascript_include_tag 'application', 'data-turbolinks-track' => true %>

scourge :

thanks pal

but did u know why must delete the js script ?

In the stackoverflow question it says the error is in which you did not tell us here (assuming your error
was the same). The suggestion there is that it is a windows issue, in
which case definitely the best thing is to switch to a linux
distribution such as Ubuntu. Very few developers use Windows for
Rails and you will find it difficult to get help.

You might like to try the tutorial (which is free to
use online) as it will run in the cloud and does not need you to
install anything. Then when you have done that you will have a better
idea of the issues.
