Starting with Sinatra

Posted by Chad L on March 30, 2020

Sinatra works as a bare bones framework for Model-View-Control (MVC) work.

From within your project, in terminal run bundle init. We will refer to ours as App.rb. Enter the ‘’ file

Here we will add require 'sinatra' require_relative './app.rb' run App

Now we can go back to the main .rb file (app.rb in this case) and write: ``class App < Sinatra::Base get ‘/’ do “Hello, World!”

end end``

Our “App” class inherits from the SInatra base.

Now if you run “Rackup” from the terminal, you should be able to view your file (using httpserver and/or Shotgun).
