FriendlyId is the slugging and permalink plug-in for Ruby on Rails. It allows you to create pretty URLs and work with human-friendly strings. The URLs created by slug are very useful for SEO. It is designed for generation of URL slug and history maintenance. Steps to create Pretty URLs: Step#1 Include gem in your Gem file: gem 'friendly_id' Then run bundle install. Step#2 Modify your model on which you want the pretty URL: extend FriendlyId friendly_id :title, use: :slugged Step#3 Add the slug column in your migration file to add it on the table add_column :articles, :slug, :string Then run rake db:migrate Now if you create an article with Title like “This is a demo title for testing”, it will create a SEO friendly URL like “this-is-a-demo-title-for-testing” and will save into the articles table under slug column.
