Rails for Beginners Part 9: URL Helpers and link_to Discussion

It's there an easy way to mark current page in navigation?

Hi, did you find a way to do this ?

Just set up and used https://github.com/comfy/active_link_to, you are awesome.

one trick that helped: setting active: :exclusive so that my Home page did not stay active when on about (or every other page)

          <%= active_link_to "Home", root_path, class: "nav-link", active: :exclusive %>

<%= link_to("Home", root_path, class: "nav-link #{'active' if current_page?(root_path)}") %>
