Provides syntactic sugar for render :partial.
Render a partial
<%= partial "people/search_box" %>
Pass some parameters in
<% form_for @person do |f| %> <%= partial "people/form", :f => f %> <% end %>
Pass in a collection
<%= partial "people/person", :collection => @people %>
Or the terse way…
<%= partials @people %>
Also works, but not as nice reading…
<%= partial @people %>
Rendering a block
<% partial "people/box" do %> Inner content goes here.. (gets called in your partial's yield statement) <% end %>
These special options pass through to render :partial. All others are passed through as :locals.
