A Rack middleware that displays a special page to anyone using the DiggBar.
Hat-tip to rue for suggesting the name.
Install it via Rubygems:
# Add http://gems.github.com to your gem sources. # (You only need to do this once) gem sources -a http://gems.github.com # Install the gem sudo gem install cypher-rack-dickbarblocker
Add this to your rack config:
require 'rack/contrib/dick_bar_blocker' use Rack::Contrib::DickBarBlocker, 'name or initials here'
Or, if you're on Rails, add this to your environment.rb:
require 'rack/contrib/dick_bar_blocker' Rails::Initializer.run do |config| config.gem 'cypher-rack-dickbarblocker', :lib => 'rack/contrib/dick_bar_blocker', :source => 'http://gems.github.com' config.middleware.use 'Rack::Contrib::DickBarBlocker', 'name or initials here' # rest of your config end
By default, it shows the following text, taken from John Grubers page (sans markup):
Framing sites is bullshit.
—(here are the supplied initials or name)
p.s. Firefox users may enjoy the
DiggBar Killer script for Greasemonkey.
p.p.s. Digg users can disable the DiggBar under
My Profile → Settings → Viewing Preferences.
You can override this by supplying the middleware with a block that returns whatever you want it to display:
use Rack::Contrib::DickBarBlocker do <<-HTML <html> <body> Kittens are fun! </body> </html> HTML end
This would return an HTML page with "Kittens are fun!" on it instead.
DickBarBlocker expects the return value of the block to respond to
It also currently hardcodes the content type to
text/html, so your return value should also be (or generate) HTML.
