When I run Sinatra and Mustache under Ruby 1.9.2, requiring the view classes doesn't work. When
requiring a file relative to current directory it must be prefixed with "./".

Here is my fix:

Is this the only part of Mustache that makes this assumption?

Seems like template_path and view_path should be absolute paths, not logical load paths.

unders commented Jun 27, 2011

Yes, only when I require the view_path this occur. template_path is no problem since it is only read and not required.


josh commented Jun 27, 2011

Relative requiring files is a smell to me. Actually, even absolute requires are nasty.

Seems like this should just be documented that the view path needs to be in your $:.

Sorry for not testing this before, but if you do this:

set :mustache, views: './views', templates: 'templates'

it works.

So maby just some documentation about how to set it up for Ruby 1.9.

Mustache will only support >= 1.9.3 coming up.
