Great! We created a new controller named Pages. How did we do this?

  1. The rails generate controller Pages command generated a new controller named Pages. This created a file named app/controllers/pages_controller.rb.
  2. Inside the new Pages controller, we added a method called home. Methods in Rails controllers are also referred to as controller actions, so here we added the home action to the Pages controller.

Instructions

1.

Now that we have a controller, let’s move on to the second part of the request/response cycle and create a route.

Open config/routes.rb and underneath line 1, type:

get 'welcome' => 'pages#home'
