Accessing controller data

You can access controller attributes from views via the @controller variable.

It has some important attributes:

  • @controller.controller_name -> the name of the controller

  • @controller.request -> returns the ActionController::Request

    • @controller.request.method -> the request method ( get, post, put, delete )

    • @controller.request.host -> the request host ( ip address or hostname ) where your server runs

    • @controller.request.ip -> the ip where your browser runs
