You can add a home page route to your app with the
# config/routes.rb Rails.application.routes.draw do root "application#index" # equivalent to: # get "/", "application#index" end # app/controllers/application_controller.rb class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base def index render "homepage" end end
And in terminal,
rake routes (
rails routes in Rails 5) will produce:
root GET / application#index
Because the homepage is usually the most important route, and routes are prioritized in the order they appear, the
root route should usually be the first in your routes file.
