Hi, completely new to testing views and templates. My first test!
The template I’d like to get at is in a subfolder within templates. Here’s the code:
content = render_to_string(MyAppWeb.View, "template.html", conn: conn)
Get this error:
Could not render "template.html" for MyAppWeb.View, please define a matching clause for render/2 or define a template at "lib/myapp_web/templates/template"
MyAppWeb.View and where exactly did you place the template?
The template is here:
lib > myapp_web > templates > subfolder > template.html.eex
The view contains:
use MyAppWeb, :view
The myapp_web.ex contains:
use Phoenix view, root: “lib/myapp_web/templates”,
I thought there must be some simple standard way of testing partial templates. I’ve googled and couldn’t find any resources and I’ve got the latest beta of the Phoenix book too!
I think you need to have either an additional view module
MyAppWeb.SubFolder or a custom render clause in some other view.
Yeah, looks like that’s correct. Pushed past that error now.
content = render_to_string(MyAppWeb.MainView(not the partial!), "partial_template", conn: conn)
