Yes, I know the common way to create a Rails application is
rails new <application_name>
and this will create a subfolder with your new Rails application called
This post is because I keep forgetting how to create a new Rails application if I’m already in the subfolder.
If your folder name is the same name you plan to use for your application you can use the command below:
rails new .
Notice the period at the end telling it to use the current directory instead of creating a subdirectory.
If you want to supply a specific application name, you’ll have to do the following:
rails new <application_name> /path/to/folder/you/want/to/use
rails new fileuploader /var/www/apps/files
