Routes in this movie

I notice Jason has many more routes on 'rake routes' than I have. He only generated the todo_items controller with index, not edit show etc etc....where did all these routes come from?

Hi Simon,

Jason created all of his routes when he nested resources :todo_items under resources :todo_lists.

Resources creates the collection of routes for index, show, edit, destroy etc. for a specific controller. If you want :todo items to only have a single route for show, then you can specify that like this:

get 'todo_items', to: :show

Thanks bro. I worked this out a little later. I rushed through to quickly so my bad. Many thanks for getting back to me. Much appreciated Joshua
