Preface: I'm trying to find my way through the "Build Your Own Ruby on Rails Web Application" book. I'm completely new to programming and am having a hard time figuring out the differences between rails 2.0.2 and what's in the book so please forgive me if this is a stupid question.
I'm confused because I finally thought I'd figured out the whole scaffolding thing but when I try to generate a scaffold for "Story", it creates EVERYTHING as "stories". I even have to go to http://localhost:3000/stories instead of http://localhost:3000/story to see the scaffold. When I generate a scaffold for "stories" it makes the exact same thing. Am I missing something?
I'm running this in Terminal a Mac OS 10.5.2 (Leopard) with MySQL, Rails 2.0.2 and Ruby 1.8.6, and WeBRICK
Here's the code, the only commands I did before this is $rails -d mysql shovell $cd shovell
admins-macbook:shovell Admin$ script/generate scaffold Story name:string link:string exists app/models/ exists app/controllers/ exists app/helpers/ create app/views/stories exists app/views/layouts/ exists test/functional/ exists test/unit/ create app/views/stories/index.html.erb create app/views/stories/show.html.erb create app/views/stories/new.html.erb create app/views/stories/edit.html.erb create app/views/layouts/stories.html.erb create public/stylesheets/scaffold.css dependency model exists app/models/ exists test/unit/ exists test/fixtures/ create app/models/story.rb create test/unit/story_test.rb create test/fixtures/stories.yml create db/migrate create db/migrate/001_create_stories.rb create app/controllers/stories_controller.rb create test/functional/stories_controller_test.rb create app/helpers/stories_helper.rb route map.resources :stories
Then I just run $rake db:migrate
and everything works fine at http://localhost:3000/stories
