Delegates to ActionView::Base#render, so see documentation on that for more info.

The only addition is that you can call render with no arguments, and RSpec will pass the top level description to render:

describe "widgets/new.html.erb" do
  it "shows all the widgets" do
    render # => view.render(:file => "widgets/new.html.erb")
    # ...
  end
end

end

def response
  # `assert_template` expects `response` to implement a #body method
  # like an `ActionDispatch::Response` does to force the view to
  # render. For backwards compatibility, we use #response as an alias
  # for #rendered, but it needs to implement #body to avoid
  # `assert_template` raising a `NoMethodError`.
  unless rendered.respond_to?(:body)
    def rendered.body
      self
    end
  end
