Rack MethodOverride With Params

Rack MethodOverride With Params solves the issue where POST requests with _method as a query param do not use _method's value as the HTTP method in Rails etc that use Rack MethodOverride.

It does this by extending Rack::MethodOverride and overriding it so it looks at both query params and form params. So you can use it anywhere you were using Rack::MethodOverride

To use it with Rack Builder

require 'rack-methodoverride-with-params'
use Rack::MethodOverrideWithParams

to use it with Rails

add it to the Gemfile

gem 'rack-methodoverride-with-params'

swap Rack::MethodOverride in config/environment.rb

config.middleware.swap Rack::MethodOverride, Rack::MethodOverrideWithParams


There is not much here, but if you want to play around, clone the project, run the specs and hack away.

I probably won't be actively working on this much as it is really simple, but if you ping me about it on github or twitter(I'm baroquebobcat), I'll help you out.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
