Newb Question

When you use one of the generator scripts, to create a model, or a
controller, say, shouldn't an rhtml file in the view folder be created
as well? Thanks.

Use script/generate scafffold foo to create a model/controller, and
views. The model and controller generators only generate the model or
controller code.

You will get a view directory when you generate the controller, but
there will not be anything in it because there are no methods in the
controller. Methods are only created in the controller with the

You can just add in the controller

def index

and in the view directory add the file 'index.rhtml' with something
like "Hello there" to see it work.
