Ruby On Rails Interview Questions and Answers
Ques. What is the purpose of Environment.RB and Application.RB in Ruby on Rails?Ans.
There are two files where variables and configuration settings are stored.
- config/environment.rb : Environment settings go here
- config/application.rb : Application level global settings go here
config.time_zone = 'Central Time (US & Canada)' config.i18n.default_locale = :de config.filter_parameters += [:password] # ensures that passwords are not logged
The same file is also used for configuring various environment settings such as:
config.action_mailer.smtp_settings # various email settings go here
What is the purpose of config/environments/development.rb file?
You would specify various config settings the development environment in this file.
config.action_controller.perform_caching = false # to enable caching
This is because you typically do not want to enable caching in the development environment.
The same config setting in the production environment would be equal to true.
