?? It's created by default: /app/views/layouts/application.html.erb
Kind of the whole point of "layouts" is to wrap content with all that
"boilerplate" automatically. It sounds like your app is basically broken.
I would generate a new app, add your controller and one of your
static pages and play around with that to see how it works, and how
your own app differs.
