First app, generate scaffolding - blank gemfile?


Hello all. Thanks in advance for any help.

So I am making my_first_rails_app, and I execute the command:

 rails generate scaffold car make:string model:string year:integer

I get the error:

  rails new APP_PATH [options]

    The 'rails new' command creates a new Rails application with a default
    directory structure and configuration at the path you specify.

    You can specify extra command-line arguments to be used every time
    'rails new' runs in the .railsrc configuration file in your home directory.

    Note that the arguments specified in the .railsrc file don't affect the
    defaults values shown above in this help message.

    rails new ~/Code/Ruby/weblog

    This generates a skeletal Rails installation in ~/Code/Ruby/weblog.

There is a note on the lesson from February 8th to open my gemfile and edit a line to fix any errors. I entered:

code Gemfile

And it was blank! Any ideas as to what happened?


Oh boy. Let me resolve this one myself. I was in the wrong directory!
