An Ambitious ActiveLdap Adapter

Write LDAP search filters in Ruby. Awesomeness courtesy of Chris Wanstrath’s Ambition library.

You must be using ActiveLdap 0.9 or greater.

Get It

$ sudo gem install ambitious-activeldap

require 'rubygems'
require 'ambition/adapters/active_ldap'


Let User be a subclass of ActiveLdap::Base { |u| u.givenName == ‘Severian’ }.each do |user|

Queries don’t run until you kick them. This adapter supports only the basic kicker methods: each, each_with_index, map, entries, to_a.

This adapter also doesn’t support the methods that require sorting, slicing, or counting, because OpenLDAP effectively doesn’t support such things. ActiveLdap lets you request sorted and sliced result sets, but it does the work in Ruby, so you might as well do it yourself.

You can call to_s, but not to_hash on a query. to_s returns the LDAP search filter as a string.

>> { |m| m.givenName == ‘Jonas’ }.to_s
=> “(givenName=Jonas)”
