I have a social network web app with ruby on rails and users can see
their profile like this: /profiles/2-admin
Now i want to make an alias or something with the route "/me" so it
would show the same as profiles/2-admin
so when i go to this: http://localhost:3000/me it shows me the same as
so the "me" would show the info from the currently logged in user!
Ho can i do that?
I have tried several things, but nothing succeeded..
If you already have an action that lets a user see their profile, then you could do something like this:
map.connect '/me', :controller => 'profiles', :action => 'user_profile_action'
Change "user_profile_action" to whatever the action is called. Whoever follows the /me route should be shown the page with their profile on it.
If you don't already have such an action, I think creating one would be the best way.
