Hi, I would to know of to have my app inserting an engine generated html
(view ? string ?)

Eg. the main page of the web needs to display the last messages of a
forum engine.
The forum engine have to retrieve the datas and format them.

What is the preferred solution ?

You should probably use partials for this - you can render partials
which belong to an engine in any view in your application.

render_component might do what you see as well, as long as that action
has a
partial attached to it instead of a full view. I have done this in a few
places myself.
