Instance Method Details

#csrf_meta_tagsObject Also known as: csrf_meta_tag

Returns meta tags “csrf-param” and “csrf-token” with the name of the cross-site request forgery protection parameter and token, respectively.

<head>
  <%= csrf_meta_tags %>
</head>

These are used to generate the dynamic forms that implement non-remote links with :method.

Note that regular forms generate hidden fields, and that Ajax calls are whitelisted, so they do not use these tags.
