Ruby on Rails latest stable (v5.2.3) - 1 note - Class: ActionDispatch::Routing::Mapper::Base

Method deprecated or moved

This method is deprecated or moved on the latest stable version. The last existing version (v4.2.9) is shown here.

These similar methods exist in v5.2.3:

root(options = {}) public

You can specify what Rails should route “/” to with the root method:

root to: 'pages#main'

For options, see match, as root uses it internally.

You can also pass a string which will expand

root 'pages#main'

You should put the root route at the top of config/routes.rb, because this means it will be matched first. As this is the most popular route of most Rails applications, this is beneficial.
