ETagPlug

CircleCI Coverage Status Hex.pm License

This plug generates shallow ETags.

Shallow means that it uses the whole response to generate the ETag and does not care about the specific content of each response. It is not context sensitive. For a deep (speak context sensitive) generation of ETags you can take a look at Phoenix ETag.

Installation

The plug can be installed by adding etag_plug to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
  [
    {:etag_plug, "~> 0.1.0"}
  ]
end

Documentation can be generated with ExDoc and published on HexDocs. Once published, the docs can be found at https://hexdocs.pm/etag_plug.

Usage

You can simply use the plug without any configuration, it then defaults to the configuration as specified in the "Configuration" section.

plug ETag.Plug

You can also provide a number of options, see the "Configuration" section for details.

plug ETag.Plug,
  generator: MyCustomGenerator,
  methods: ["GET", "HEAD"],
  status_codes: [:ok, 201, :not_modified]

Configuration

generator

Expects a module implementing the ETag.Generator behaviour. The plug ships with a number of "default" generators:

  • ETag.Generator.MD5
  • ETag.Generator.SHA1
  • ETag.Generator.SHA512

Default: Application.fetch_env!(:etag_plug, :generator)

methods

Expects a list of strings, describing the HTTP methods for which ETags should be generated and evaluated.

Default: Application.fetch_env!(:etag_plug, :methods)

status_codes

Expects an enumerable of integers (or status atoms) which define the statuses for which ETags should be handled and generated.

Default: Application.fetch_env!(:etag_plug, :status_codes)
