In my View I have a list of items in database. By the side of each item
in there is "delete" link.
There is also an AJAX form which allows to create new items. New items
are appended to list by JS.

When submit button is pressed, controller should send back JSON. The
problem is - how to send that "delete" link as a JSON? Since link's html
has some double quotes in it, I dont get valid JSON and my JS crashes.

destroy_link  = view_context.link_to('Delete', created, method: :delete,
remote: true, :class => 'minus' )

json = {'plural'       =>,
  'singular'     =>,
  'created'      => created

Since I dont know a lot about ajax, propably something is terribly wrong
