I'm trying to upload pictures in my rails app, bt it's giving me error:- ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches [GET] "/system/pictures/assets/small/IMG_-_WIN_20141206_09. I don't know where i went wrong.

I try to give :url and :path also and i also upload image of rails logo and move to app/assets/images

$curl -O http://rubyonrails.org/image/rails.png

$ mv rails.png app/assets/images/

My git repository is at: https://github.com/sarahgupta022/book.git

This is my picture.rb

class Picture < ActiveRecord::Base

belongs_to :album

belongs_to :user

attr_accessible :caption, :description, :asset

has_attached_file :asset, style: { 
                      large: "800x800>", medium: "300x200>", small: "260x180>", thumb: "80x80#"
                      } , :default_url => "/app/assets/images/small/rails.png"

  validates_attachment_file_name :asset, :matches => [/png\Z/, /jpe?g\Z/, /gif\Z/]
 validates :asset, attachment_presence: true

  def to_s
    caption? ? caption : "Picture"


This is my views/pictures/index.html.erb

<p id="notice"><%= notice %></p> <%= page_header do %> <% if signed_in? && current_user == @user %> <%= link_to 'Add Picture', new_album_picture_path(current_user, @album), class: 'btn pull-right' %> <% end %> <h1><%= @album.title %></h1> <% end %>

<ul class="thumbnails"> <% @pictures.each do |picture| %> <li> <div class="thumbnail"> <%= link_to image_tag(picture.asset.url(:small)), album_picture_path(@user, @album, picture) %><br /><br /> <div class="caption"> <% if picture.caption? %><%= picture.caption %><br /><br /><% end %>

            <%= link_to 'View full size', album_picture_path(@user, @album, picture) %>

            <% if can_edit_picture?(picture) %>
            <%= link_to "Edit", edit_album_picture_path(@album, picture) %>
            <%= link_to "Delete", album_picture_path(@album, picture), method: :delete, data: { confirm: "Are you sure?" } %>
            <% end %>
<% end %>

This is the Issue.

:default_url => "/app/assets/images/small/rails.png"

You may not need the "/app/assets/images" just the "/small/rails.png" Here is an example of an image tag code I use.

<%= image_tag("image.png", size: "75x75", class: "img-responsive logo") %>

I know that is in the html but you can see that the assets pipeline doesn't need or want the rest of the url. This may or may not help you.

After reading assets pipeline, i make changes in my config/environments/development.rb and config/application


config.assets.digest = false

config.assets.debug = false

In config/application.rb

config.assets.enabled = false

and i also run
RAILS_ENV=production bin/rake assets:precompile

I also remove

:default_url => "/app/assets/images/small/rails.png"

bt still problem is same
