Here is the method version:
  # Note: Do not pass a name ending in '_action' or '_template'
  # as such methods get automatically deleted on a regular basis.
  def self.temp(name, parameters, body)
    class_eval %{
      def #{name}(#{parameters})
        out, @out = @out, ''
        out, @out = @out, out
#Define a template piece:
  temp 'some_name', 'param1, param2', %{
    Hello, World!
    <?r param1.times do ?>
      I was passed \#{param2}.
    <?r end ?>
#Use it within another template piece:
   #{some_name 2, 'foo'}
