Rails bundles default 404 (file not found), 422 (unprocessable entity), and 500 (internal server error) pages into every newly generated application. While they get the job done, these pages are pretty bland, so in this post I’ll show you how to update them to suit the logic and design requirements of your application.
I’m happy to announce availability of my book, "Easy Active Record for Rails Developers". The 236 page book introduces various aspects of Active Record in great detail, including model and schema management, validations, queries, data management, extensive coverage of associations, nested forms, scopes, model testing using RSpec and FactoryGirl, and much, much more. Readers learn via walkthroughs of examples based around a real-world project called ArcadeNomad that tracks the location of retro 1980’s arcade games.
