XML Canonicalizer for Ruby >= 1.9.2
This gem is intended to replace andrewferk's xmlcanonicalizer which appears to have been abandoned.
The main reason why this gem was created was to provide a working XML Canonicaliser for the ruby-saml project. The original gem had a bug in it that prevented it from correctly processing namespaced XML documents. A patch was provided by relevance and has been applied to canonix.
I personally have little understanding of the inner workings of this code, and will happily accept pull requests to fix any issues that you may come across (with tests please). I am also not aware of which XML Canonicalisation algorithm is implemented by this gem, and a discussion on this matter can be found here: github.com/brendon/canonix/issues/2.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
