Prefix in routes can be set manually?

It seems that Rails will set Prefix automatically. Is there any way I can change the prefix name or create own prefix?

Hello PoJung,

Sure, you can redefine your names helpers in your routes file like this:

get "users", to: "users#index", as: "customers"

Now you have helpers like customers_path pointing to your users GET route.

For more information take a look at official Rails routing guide.
