Routing to static html page in /public
How can I route /foo to display /public/foo.html in Rails?
You can do this:
Add this, into your routes.rb file.
match '/foo', :to => redirect('/foo.html')
In Rails 4, it should use "get", not "match":
get '/foo', :to => redirect('/foo.html')

This can be done without triggering a redirect. Follow the steps further down to be able to route static files in config/routes.rb as shown in this example:
# This route will serve public/index.html at the /login URL # path, and have a URL helper named `login_path`: get "/login", to: static("index.html") # This route will serve public/register.html at the /register # URL path, and have URL helper named `new_user_registration_path`: get "/register", to: static("register.html"), as: :new_user_registration
- Install the rails-static-router gem: https://github.com/mufid/rails-static-router#installation
- Restart app (first bin/spring stop to be sure app is completely reloaded).
- Start using the static(path) method in your config/routes.rb.
E.g in Rails 4 add the following route:
get '/example', :to => redirect('example.html')
Also you need to enable static files from the 'public' directory in your configuration:
config.serve_static_files = true
config.serve_static_assets = true
Also you might need to provide your public directory as root in NGINX configuration.
