Mapping URLs in Rails

I just blogged about mapping urls in Rails explaining how to create restful routes when you want route names to be different from model names.


I would not put `:url=> "/add"` hard-coded like that. It will break if you deploy your rails app at a suburi, it also is another place you need to change if you decide to change your routes from /add to something else (say, you want to internationalize it so it uses the spanish word for 'add' in the url or something).

The Rails way to do this is with a routing method alias, or a hash, describing _what you want to do_, and let the rails routing translate that to a URL -- if the routing changes, your view doesn't have to.

:url => {:controller => 'book_reviews', :action => "create"}


:url => book_review_create_path()jrochkind - October 09, 2012 22:37
