I had a bit of a mystery while trying to test out how RESTful routing
of Ruby on Rails worked.
My controller looked like:
respond_to do |format|
format.html # show.rhtml
text = ''
text = boottime.logical_host.macaddress + ":\r\n"
text += " geometryX: " + lastcc.geometryX.to_s + "\r\n"
text += " geometryY: " + lastcc.geometryY.to_s + "\r\n"
render :context_type => "text/yaml", :text => text
and my test case looked like:
get :show, :id => mac
When I first tried doing:
get :show, :id => mac+'.yml'
it failed to work. That’s now how to do it.
I went through many attempts, and finally realized that the extension should be
“yaml” not, “yml” (and in the respond_to) as well.
get :show, :id => mac, :format => 'yaml'
works. Silly me.
