gem 'rails', '188.8.131.52' to my Gemfile, removed the older version of rails, did
bundle install, and created the app using
rails _184.108.40.206_ new appname. I’m following this article. According to this, in Rails 5, I should have a directory named channels inside /app but I’m not seeing it. Did I not update to Rails 5 correctly? What’s the problem?
Try installing the latest version of Rails directly from your terminal (preferably in a new custom workspace):
sudo gem install rails
Once rails is installed, create the new application:
rails new <name>
You should see the
So I created a new workspace and ran
sudo gem install rails in the
username:~/workspace directory and it installed the latest version of rails alright. I then ran
rails new appname and got the “Can’t initialize a new Rails application within the directory of another, please change to a non-Rails directory first” error. So I deleted all the files in the
username:~/workspace/bin directoy and ran
rails new appname again and it created the app successfully. However, I still don’t see the
app/channels directory inside
username:~/workspace/appname. When I run
gem list there, it shows
rails (220.127.116.11, 4.2.5).
Can’t initialize a new Rails application within the directory of another, please change to a non-Rails directory first
You probably created a new Ruby type workspace. You should create a Custom type workspace. This is because the Ruby type workspace already comes with Rails 4 and an application directory already created inside the
Thanks! I created a blank workspace and I’m seeing the
app/channels directory now after creating the app!
So since I had to create an entirely new workspace to get Rails 5 working, does it mean existing Rails 4 apps can’t be updated?
If you mean upgrading Rails 4 applications to Rails 5, take a look at this link: http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org/upgrading_ruby_on_rails.html
If you mean updating your workspace to Rails 5, you can uninstall the Rails 4 gem and then run
sudo gem install rails to install Rails 5.
I tried to update rails-4.2 to rails-5.0.1 . for that I installed ruby2.4.1 and then create new workspace(gemset) and then bundle install.
Now application is showing rails-5 version.but still couldn’t get (channels and mailer and preview mailer ) folder.
I tried above link which you mentioned.
