At around time 20:03, you said that you use a private method so that the method doesn’t show in a list of actions and “will be handled accordingly.” What does “handled accordingly” mean? Is there something different about how a private method is handled in a controller vs. a plain ruby class?
No, I don’t think so. But if you were to use a public method it would technically be exposed as an action in the controller.
Ok, cool, that’s what I thought. Thank you!
