A simple library to parse the beloved browscap.ini file. This gem was ported to Ruby by Lukas Fittl from Python. The original code was written by Henning Schroeder.


require 'browscap'
bcap =
browser = bcap.query("Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.5; Linux; X11; de) KHTML/3.5.2 (like Gecko) Kubuntu 6.06 Dapper")

browser.crawler?    # => false
browser.version     # => 3.5

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.
