is_the_site_still_up

If you're building an application that has both online and offline functionality it can be useful to know if the site is really still up (because you can't rely on navigator.onLine). This middleware allows you to poll /online or the path of your choice and return simple text or the result of a block without involving the whole application stack. Meaning, you can poll more frequently without melting your server.

Contributing to is_the_site_still_up

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet.

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it.

  • Fork the project.

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch.

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution.

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
