Gem Version

A Rails solution to the European Cookie Law issue.

This will add a dismissable "cookies bar" and an optional link to a policy page.

Build Status Code Climate


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'eu_cookies', '~> 1.1.0'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Run the installation generator:

$ bundle exec rails g eu_cookies:install

Then, just add this somewhere on you <body>:

<%= cookies_bar %>

NOTE: This gem imply that you have JQuery.


On a initializer you can configure some things (defaults are shown here):

# false to remove the default internal link, a string to link an external page
EuCookies.display_policy = true
# true to treat page scroll as acceptance
EuCookies.use_scroll = false
# false to disable all the features
EuCookies.enabled = true


To quickly customize position and styles you can override some Sass variables, take a look to your app/assets/stylesheets/eu_cookies.scss file.

Supported languages

The cookies bar message is available in English, Croatian, Dutch, Estonian, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish.

The full policy page is currently in english.


Not supported, please use jquery.turbolinks gem.
