The multipart body is an attempt to bring consistency to multipart content in Ruby. When developing CloudMailin we struggled to find a gem to help us create multipart bodies. Many different libraries had implemented multipart bodies through their own implementation but non could be used independently.
The aim of MultipartBody is to ensure consistency when creating (and parsing in future) multipart content
require 'multipart_body' # From a hash multipart = MultipartBody.new(:field1 => 'content', :field2 => 'something else') # With parts part = Part.new(:name => 'name', :body => 'body', :filename => 'f.txt', :content_type => 'text/plain', :encoding => :base64) # or to specify just the name, body and optional filename part = Part.new('name', 'content', 'file.txt') multipart = MultipartBody.new([part]) # Output part.to_s #=> The part with headers and content multipart.to_s #=> The full list of parts joined by boundaries
- Implement Parsing
- Add different encodings
- Add the ability to automatically add files and have the filename set
