Balancing On Rails

Removing a controller

Rails does a lot of automation to generate controllers etc. For an example if you are creating a controller, all you need to do is:

ruby script/generate controller some

This would generate a lot of things like

  • creates a director called some under views
  • creates a file called some_controller.rb under app/controllers directory.
  • creates a file called some_controller_test.rb test/functional directory.
  • creates a file called admin_helper.rb under app/helpers directory.

All this is fine. But let's say I created this controller and later I don't want this controller. I want to remove it. How do I remove it? Is there a automation command that would go through and remove the files for me?

    In rails 3 just do

    rails destroy controller controller_name views_name

    That's all.
