Custom Inflections

Jets lookups folders, files, and classes based on naming conventions. It singularizes or pluralizes words as a part of this naming convention. For example:

controller model views folder
PostsController Post app/views/posts
ToysController Toy app/views/toys

Sometimes you might want to override the grammatical inflections. You can do this by configuring a config/inflections.yml with your own custom inflections. Example:


octopus: octopi
person: people
hi: hi

This changes the singularization and pluralization of words to fit your needs.
