sinatra-url-for can be used by a Sinatra application to construct absolute paths and full URLs.
To install it, run:
sudo gem install emk-sinatra-url-for -s http://gems.github.com
To include it in a Sinatra application, write:
require 'rubygems' gem 'emk-sinatra-url-for' require 'sinatra/url_for'
Once this is done, you should be able to call url_for from within a request. Assuming that your application is running on example.com, and that it has been mapped to /myapp, you should get:
url_for "/" # Returns "/myapp/" url_for "/foo" # Returns "/myapp/foo" url_for "/foo", :full # Returns "http://example.com/myapp/foo"
If you're subclassing Sinatra::Base, then you need to call helpers manually:
class MyApp < Sinatra::Base helpers Sinatra::UrlForHelper # ... end
Thanks to “cypher23” on #mephisto and the folks on #rack for pointing me in the right direction. If this gem fails to work correctly on your web system, please feel free to submit patches and/or bug reports!
