Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Routes, part of Ruby on Rails 4 Essential Training.
…In this movie we will learn how Rails Routing…works and learn to write some of our own routes.…In the last movie we saw the diagram of the Rails architecture.…We talked about how the browser sends request…to the web server and the web server…looks in the public directory to see if it can find a file that matches the request.…And if not, then it pins the request off to the Rails framework.…And it does that by handling it to the Rails routes.…And the Rails routing takes the request and determines,…what control or an action or going to be called.…
So we want to understand in this movie, is how routing does its job.…How does it translate request into a controller and action.…There're a number of different kinds of routes.…We're going to start out by just looking at three of the most basic ones.…The Simple route, also sometimes called Match route.…The Default route and the Root route.…Before we do that, let's do a quick demo.…Let's make sure that you're inside the root of your Rails application.…And then from here, run Rails server to launch your server.…
