Viewing 404 in development


I'm doing a basic project in Ruby on Rails, and want to test my routing, and error pages. I'd like to do this in my development environment. I've gone into config/environments/development.rb and set:

config.action_controller.consider_all_requests_local = false

But when I go to an improper route, I don't get public/404.html rendered. I continue to get the routing error page:

Routing Error

No route matches "/badroute" with {:method=>:get}

Is there a better way to check this? I'd like to see how rails handles the routing errors by default, and what the 404 will cover, than maybe add some complex error handling after.

Thanks for the help!

For what it’s worth, I have solved this issue. As opposed to localhost, point your browser to your machines ip address, assuming your development is local.

Otherwise you could rescue_action_locally to call rescue_action_in_public.
