XML.Builder

Hey guys,

I have a quick question about xml.builder rendering in Rails. I'm
pretty sure I am just getting the builder syntax wrong.

The problem is that I can't get it to display things that I want
rendered out. By looking at the logs it seems like Rails has found
everything, but my syntax for displaying is wrong, so it displays
nothing.

I would like to display for example,

post.title
post.author
post.body

That's all wrapped in a for loop, that should display all the posts. I
did a respond to xml in the controller, and I defined all my variables
correctly. However, I'm getting a blank screen.

What's the equivalent of <%= %> in xml.builder syntax?

Thank you

But consider not using Builder. Haml works just as well for XML as it
does for HTML, as does ERb (though it's less pleasant than Haml). I
find Builder to be more trouble than it's worth in many cases.

Thank you

Best,
