namespace(path, options = {}) public

Scopes routes to a specific namespace. For example:

namespace :admin do
  resources :posts
end

This generates the following routes:

    admin_posts GET    /admin/posts(.:format)          admin/posts#index
    admin_posts POST   /admin/posts(.:format)          admin/posts#create
 new_admin_post GET    /admin/posts/new(.:format)      admin/posts#new
edit_admin_post GET    /admin/posts/:id/edit(.:format) admin/posts#edit
     admin_post GET    /admin/posts/:id(.:format)      admin/posts#show
     admin_post PUT    /admin/posts/:id(.:format)      admin/posts#update
     admin_post DELETE /admin/posts/:id(.:format)      admin/posts#destroy

Options

The :path, :as, :module, :shallow_path and :shallow_prefix options all default to the name of the namespace.

For options, see Base#match. For :shallow_path option, see Resources#resources.

Examples

# accessible through /sekret/posts rather than /admin/posts
namespace :admin, :path => "sekret" do
  resources :posts
end

# maps to <tt>Sekret::PostsController</tt> rather than <tt>Admin::PostsController</tt>
namespace :admin, :module => "sekret" do
  resources :posts
end

# generates +sekret_posts_path+ rather than +admin_posts_path+
namespace :admin, :as => "sekret" do
  resources :posts
end

Without module

If you want to have only the path prefix without namespacing your controller, pass :module => false.

Normal:

namespace :account do
  resources :transactions, :only => [:index]
end

account_transactions GET /account/transactions(.:format)
{:controller=>"account/transactions", :action=>"index"}

With :module => false:

namespace :account, :module => false do
  resources :transactions, :only => [:index]
end

account_transactions GET /account/transactions(.:format)
{:controller=>"transactions", :action=>"index"}

with a params constant

If you want to have a params with the same value on all of the urls in this namespace, you can write this :

with a constant param :admin set to true

namespace :admin, :admin => true do
  resources :posts
end

all of the urls like /admin/post have a param :admin with the value true.

It works also with :

scope 'admin', :admin => true do
 ...
end

match 'administration', :admin => true => 'posts#index'

get 'administration', :admin => true

etc…
