Ruby client for Camo - the SSL image proxy
Note: If you have not set up the Camo server, start with Deploying the Server.
Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:
Add your Camo host and key to your environment or create an initializer
ENV["CAMO_HOST"] = "https://camo.herokuapp.com" ENV["CAMO_KEY"] = "rzsJbU5YxDfdP3FXHjshtgEN"
You can now use the
camo method in your views and controllers.
<%= image_tag camo("https://placekitten.com/g/200/300") %>
It’s that easy!
Deploying the Server
Clone the camo repository.
git clone https://github.com/atmos/camo.git cd camo
Create a new project on Heroku.
heroku create myapp-camo git push heroku master
Choose a random secret key and add it to your app.
heroku config:set CAMO_KEY=rzsJbU5YxDfdP3FXHjshtgEN
Open your app to make sure it’s working. You should see the text “hwhat”.
