return while rendering partial collections

Ruby's next keyword only works in the context of a loop or enumerator method.

So if you're rendering a collection of objects using Rails render partial: collection, how do you skip to the next item?

Since partials are compiled into methods in a dynamically generated view class, you can simulate next by using an explicit return statement. It will short-circuit the rendering of your partial template and iteration will continue with the next element of the collection.

For example

# app/views/users/_user.haml
- return if user.disabled?
    rest of your template...
