was mentioned as a possible rogue tag. It has currently has 3 questions and no wiki. It turns out that erb is a Ruby class. As best I can tell, is used for .

Now, I see this tag as a problem because we don't want language specific tags for concepts. However, this assumes that I've interpreted what this class is correctly.

The way I see it, we have several options.

  1. Add a tag wiki and leave it alone.
  2. Re-tag it with an appropriate concept tag.
  3. Simply burn it.

I could really use a domain expert's input on this. (It would be really great if a domain expert could add a wiki, at least until we decide what to do with the tag.)

As far as I can see those questions are about ERB templating.

A combination of text with <% %> <%= %> <% -%> <%# %> and Ruby inside those delimiters.

This is a far cry from NSString and I think the erb tag should be left alone. Of course, I am in the TPL*, so I am hardly objective ;)

  • \$\begingroup\$ I'm 100% okay with that. It seems unique enough to warrant a tag to me. Would you mind creating a wiki for it though? \$\endgroup\$
