16.1. Abbreviations

There are a handful of abbreviations that make your life as a developer much easier. In the rest of this book, I have always used the full version of these commands, to make it clearer for beginners, but in practice, you will soon find that the abbreviations are easier to use.
  • rails console
    Shorthand notation: rails c
  • rails server
    Shorthand notation: rails s
  • rails generate scaffold
    Shorthand notation: rails g scaffold

Updates about this book will be published on my Twitter feed.
