Learn rails broadway generate controller Pages error



rails new broadway
cd broadway
rails generate controller Pages

$ rails generate controller Pages
/home/ccuser/.gem/ruby/2.3.0/gems/activesupport-4.1.1/lib/active_support/values/time_zone.rb:285: warning: circular argument re
ference - now
/home/ccuser/.gem/ruby/2.3.0/gems/activerecord-4.1.1/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/connection_specification.rb:190:in rescue in spec': Specified 'sqlite3' for database adapter, but the gem is not loaded. Addgem ‘sqlite3’` to your Gemfile (and
ensure its version is at the minimum required by ActiveRecord). (Gem::LoadError)

then when i check the controllers path i do not see that Pages controller has been generated.


forgot to mention that of course i did bundle install also.

rails -v shows rails 4.1.1

Hi @devcoder25660,

Could you please post the contents of your Gemfile here?

gem file below:

any response please?

I was hoping to use codeacademy pro to learn ruby and ruby on rails, but I’ve instead resorted to using a local dev environment to learn instead.

I cannot progress any further on these exercises because of these errors.

a workaround would be welcome

Sorry, I wasn’t active on here yesterday and I had a few things I had to take care of this morning.

Try adding these lines to the Gemfile:

gem 'tzinfo'
gem 'tzinfo-data'

Then run bundle install in the terminal, and see if that makes the error go away.

exact same error after adding

gem 'tzinfo'
gem 'tzinfo-data'

to Gemfile and running bundle install

are you able to reproduce the same error on that excercise?

looks like I found a fix

I changed default sqlite entry in Gemfile from

gem 'sqlite3'


gem 'sqlite3', '~> 1.3.13'

then ran bundle update & bundle install again.

now rails generate controller Pages works as expected

thanks for your help any way
