render(options = {}, locals = {}, &block) public

Returns the result of a render that’s dictated by the options hash. The primary options are:

  • :partial - See ActionView::PartialRenderer.

  • :file - Renders an explicit template file (this used to be the old default), add :locals to pass in those.

  • :inline - Renders an inline template similar to how it’s done in the controller.

  • :text - Renders the text passed in out.

  • :plain - Renders the text passed in out. Setting the content type as text/plain.

  • :html - Renders the HTML safe string passed in out, otherwise performs HTML escape on the string first. Setting the content type as text/html.

  • :body - Renders the text passed in, and inherits the content type of text/html from ActionDispatch::Response object.

If no options hash is passed or :update specified, the default is to render a partial and use the second parameter as the locals hash.
