I am using Ruby on Rails 4.
I am trying to
in my controller so that I can parse the login information I am getting from a form and send it to an API.
I can verify that the gem is installed and is also in my Gemfile on the application root.
However, it is still throwing the "cannot load such file -- rest-client " when I try to require the file in my controller.
I have googled the error and most of the answers I saw were either the gem wasn't installed, wasn't in the Gemfile, or a combination of both those. Neither is the situation here.
Is my controller unable to access the rest-client gem for some reason? I have to use rest-client because it is required in the API.
This is the line I used to install the gem:
gem install rest-client
This is the homepage of the gem: https://github.com/archiloque/rest-client
Which just redirects you to https://github.com/rest-client/rest-client
I should also note that it works fine when I wasn't using the code in a Rails project but just running the commands in the Terminal.
