Now you want to create a new app called
railsgirls by running:
rails new railsgirls -m http://www.railsgirls.co.il/template.rb
rails new railsgirls tells Rails to generate a project called railsgirls with all the files that our application needs.
-m http://www.railsgirls.co.il/template.rb tells Rails to download a special template from railsgirls.co.il which makes the files a bit simpler and easier for beginners to understand.
It will take a minute or so, and after that you’ll see something like this:
This will create a new app in the folder
railsgirls, so we again want to change the directory to be inside of our rails app by running:
If you run
ls inside of the directory you should see folders such as
rails new command automatically created all these folders and files for us.
Coach: Explain what each command does. What was generated? What does the server do? You can find more details about the special template on GitHub.
