Ajax form with partial view update

Hi I am trying to use partials to update my view with re-rendering. I
created a form to submit using ajax

I am using slim-rails in place of erb

= simple_form_for(@landmark, remote: true) do |f|

  • if @landmark.errors.any?
    h2 = “#{pluralize(@landmark.errors.count, “error”)}
    prohibited this landmark from being saved:”
    • @landmark.errors.full_messages.each do |message|
      li = message
      = f.input :city
      = f.input :name
      = f.button :submit, class: ‘btn btn-primary btn-sm’

I created a js file create.js.erb which gets called on submit, inside
it I want to make use of a partial with jQuery to append the new item
as a new row in the table, like this (file create.js.erb):

$(‘tbody’).append("<%= j (render ‘landmark’, object: @landmark) %>");

My partial file ‘_landmark.html.slim’ looks like this

td = landmark.city
td = landmark.name
td = link_to ‘Show’, landmark, class: ‘btn btn-info btn-xs’
td = link_to ‘Edit’, edit_landmark_path(landmark), class: ‘btn
btn-primary btn-xs’
td = link_to ‘Destroy’, landmark, :method => :delete, remote: true,
class: ‘delete-landmark btn btn-danger btn-xs’

This is the error I am getting, how can I pass data and make use of my
partial from javascript?

It’s slowly starting to make sense, I changed up create.js.erb to

$(‘tbody’).append("<%= j (render @landmark) %>");

This seems to have fixed the error and I’m seeing the new item getting
added without a re-render.
