Code written, but not acknowledged


Sorry, I couldn’t think of a better way to phrase this problem. I will just give a few examples. i’m working though the RoR Tutorial, just for context.
When I edit code in the text editor after it has been generated, it isn’t acknowledged. For example, when I change a get to a root in the routes.rb, it is not acknowledged in the rails server. Another example is when I try to write some new test for my code. It simply isn’t acknowledged by the rake test. It just lists the same number of assertions and so on without acknowledging what I have added.
Maybe this is a problem with a code, or something I have done to break it, but I have looked online, and the only advice I could find was stop using an IDE. (so helpful) :slight_smile:
I have completely dumped and started the project over thrice now to see if it was just something I was doing, but I can’t seem to figure it out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


when this happens do you see any errors in ide or browser console?
Is there a red dot displayed on the tab
Is cpu usage on 100%
