A simple Ruby on the Rails Database app (dictionary)

I talked about installing Rails on Ubuntu Server before here. This is a simple rails dictionary application. It’s really simple, and requires no code. Obviously not particularly “featureful”.

1. Create a new rails project:

rails new nihongo

2. Create a dictionary database for words:

cd nihongo
rails generate scaffold Word word:string definition:string tags:string
rake db:migrate

3. Start the server

rails server

4. Use you application:

Go to http://localhost:3000/words in a web browser.
