= RailsDbBrowser

Simple database browser for Rails application backed by ActiveRecord

== Instalation

=== Rails 2.3

in config/environment.rb

    config.gem 'rails_db_browser'

and then create an app/metal/db_browse.rb

    DbBrowse = RailsDbBrowser::Runner.new('/db_browse')
    
=== Rails 3

in Rails 3 in Gemfile

    gem 'rails_db_browser'

in config/routes.rb

  match "db_browse(/*s)", :to => RailsDbBrowser::Runner.new('/db_browse')

== Security

It is up to you to provide security.

You could check environment and run browser only in development.
If you user Rails 2.3 then you still should provide empty Rack application as metal

  class DbBrowse
    def self.call(env)
      [404, nil, nil]
    end
  end
  
You could use Rack::Builder with combination of any Rack authentication middleware

  DbBrowse = Rack::Builder.new do
    use RailsDbBrowser::URLTruncate, '/db_browse'
    use Rack::Auth::Basic, 'db_browser' do |user, password|
      user == 'admin' && password == 'iamgod'
    end
    run RailsDbBrowser::DbBrowser
  end
  
(Well, I've tested it in Rails2.3. Rails3 application with Devise falls on wrong password)
