I need to know the current route in a filter in Rails. How can I find out what it is?
I'm doing REST resources, and see no named routes.
To find out URI:
current_uri = request.env['PATH_INFO'] # If you are browsing http://example.com/my/test/path, # then above line will yield current_uri as "/my/test/path"
To find out the route i.e. controller, action and params:
path = ActionController::Routing::Routes.recognize_path "/your/path/here/" # ...or newer Rails versions: # path = Rails.application.routes.recognize_path('/your/path/here') controller = path[:controller] action = path[:action] # You will most certainly know that params are available in 'params' hash
