…We've seen how controllers can either redirect or render a view template.…In this movie, I'd like us to take…a closer look at how those view templates function.…So far those view templates have been composed of only HTML.…We could use only HTML, but that's not dynamic or database driven.…Instead, what we want is to be able to embed Ruby code into our templates.…So then we can use that to put dynamic information into them.…And to do that, we're going to use ERb.…ERb is short for Embedded Ruby.…It's an eRuby templating system to embed Ruby code in our template files.…
You may remember that these letters were part of our template file name.…Hello.html.erb.…What that means is, we have a template named hello.…We're going to process that file with ERb.…And then when we're done, the final format will be in HTML.…There are other templating systems that you can install an use instead of ERb.…But ERb is the default that comes with Rails, and it's the most popular.…We can have different output formats too, not just HTML.…
