A Quick Study of the Rails Directory Structure

Ruby on Rails is a full fledged web framework written in Ruby. It is one of the most famous web frameworks and makes getting started with development so easy. Today I would like to explain the default files and folders generated by Rails. Let's get started.

To create a new Rails app, all we have to do is run the following command:

rails new sample_app

The above command generates the directory structure that we're discussing today. It might change if you are using an older version of Rails. This article is based on the latest Rails version which, as of this writing, is 4.2.4. You can find the version installed in your system by typing this in the console

rails version
=> Rails 4.2.4
