Deprecated render nothing: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features
Deprecated render nothing: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

Render nothing is deprecated in Ruby on Rails 5. As Kevin explains in the video, when you render nothing, Rails still sends an HTML header and a success status code even though it is not obvious that it would. Instead, to make it clearer, developers should use head(:ok), or head with another status code, to make it clearer what is actually happening. Render nothing will still work in Rails 5, but it gives deprecation warnings, and will likely disappear in Rails 5.1.
