Protect instance variables with Proffer Jump to Story

If you try to avoid close coupling inside your app and you feel squeamish about Rails sharing all instances variables from your controller actions with your views, a new gem called proffer might be a solution for you. The goal is the same the decent_exposure gem but the difference lies in the implementation. With decent_exposure the variables need to be exposed at the top of the controller. With proffer you call the proffer method and pass it a key — a symbol for the variable name — and a value — the actual value.
