Why does Ruby “script/generate” return “No such file or directory”?
I am having trouble using script/generate. I am following the tree based navigation tutorial, which says to use script/plugin install git://github.com/rails/acts_as_tree.git or script/generate nifty_layout.
I keep getting:
No such file or directory -- script/plugin
I've tried these variations:
script/generate nifty_layout rails generate nifty_layout ruby script/generate nifty_layout ruby generate nifty_layout
and they all tell me:
-bash: script/generate: No such file or directory
Am I missing something? Total ruby nuby here and I just can't seem to find an answer.
edit: rails 3 on Mac OS X 10.6
Rails 3 is your problem (or rather the cause of). Since rails 3 all of the "script/whatever" commands have been replaced with "rails whatever".
So now you want "rails generate ..." or "rails server" instead.
Be sure to watch version numbers or post dates when looking at tutorials :) linkage: Missing script/generate in Rails 3
