[Resolved]view templates from engines don't load in production

Reported by stefanpenner | February 28th, 2009 @ 08:32 PM | in 2.x

It seems view layouts from engines where the controller is also present in the host app do not load in production, but load fine in development.


Github Repo


  1. ./script/server
  2. browse to http://localhost:3000/index

not working

  1. ./script/server -e production
  2. browse to http://localhost:3000/index


Host Application

app/controller/application_controller.rb app/views/layouts/ {empty} app/views/other_controller/index.html.haml

%p content of app/view/other_controller/index.html.haml


vender/plugins/engine_name/app/controller/application_controller.rb vender/plugins/engine_name/app/controller/other_controller.rb

class OtherController < ApplicationController


%h1 ApplicationController layouts content
= yield

HTML output in production

does not render the layouts

<p> content of app/view/other_controller/index.html.haml

HTML output in development

renders the layouts

<h1> ApplicationController layouts content</h1>
<p> content of app/view/other_controller/index.html.haml

    I might be missing something, but why do you have templates dir instead of layouts?

    thanks thedarkone: for pointing that out, that was my mistake in the ticket and has been corrected.

    ok, thanks for clearing that up :), however I can't reproduce the issue, everything works in both dev and prod modes for me on edge rails.

    I might be doing something wrong though... can you provide a complete small app (upload an archive or make project on github)?

    Thanks, everything works fine with rails-edge for me.

    I'm not sure I made myself clear ;), I can't confirm your issues with edge Rails. If I checkout out Rails v2.3.0 there's an error with unknown action in production env.

    • Title changed from “view templates from engines don't load in production” to “[Resolved]view templates from engines don't load in production”

    seems doing another rake rails:freeze:edge fixes the issues, seems the code-base i was working with was outdated, my apologies.
