Ruby Building Web Apps with Sinatra Adding New Data Submitting the Form Via POST Request

Redirecting browser...

Could someone point out the flaw in my code please?

Finally, at the end of the post "/signatures/create" route, redirect the browser to the /signatures/new path (which will re-display the signature form).

<p>Please enter your name below.</p>

<form method= "post" action= "/signatures/create">
  <input type="text" name="signature">
  <input type="submit">
require "sinatra"
require "URI"

def save_signature(signature)
  File.open("signatures.txt", "a") do |file|
    file.puts signature

get "/signatures/new" do
  erb :new

post "/signature/create" do
  redirect URI.escape("#{params["/signatures/new"]}")

You should take off params on your last row

  redirect URI.escape("#{"/signatures/new"}"

"/signatures/new" should be just a string - it's not a variable, so you don't need the interpolation block ( #{} ) and it's not contained in the params hash, so the only thing passed to the URI.escape() should be that string, nothing more.
