SSL Requirement

SSL requirement adds a declarative way of specifying that certain actions should only be allowed to run under SSL, and if they're accessed without it, they should be redirected.

ForceSSL

Rails 3.1's ForceSSL supersedes this repository.

Example:

class ApplicationController < ActiveRecord::Base
  include SslRequirement
end

class AccountController < ApplicationController
  ssl_required :signup, :payment
  ssl_allowed :index

  def signup
    # Non-SSL access will be redirected to SSL
  end

  def payment
    # Non-SSL access will be redirected to SSL
  end

  def index
    # This action will work either with or without SSL
  end

  def other
    # SSL access will be redirected to non-SSL
  end
end

You can overwrite the protected method ssl_required? to rely on other things than just the declarative specification. Say, only premium accounts get SSL.

P.S.: Beware when you include the SslRequirement module. At the time of inclusion, it'll add the before_filter that validates the declarations. Some times you'll want to run other before_filters before that. They should then be declared ahead of including this module.
