Top Level Domain Cookies
Top level domain cookie jar for Rails 3.
When you are using subdomains with your Rails 3, sometimes you need to set the cookies on the top level domain. One option is set the default domain in config/initializers/session_store.rb.
Rails.application.config.session_store :cookie_store, :key => '_app_name_session', :domain => :all
The other option is for all the cookies to be written on the current location (subdomain included) and specify cookies that need need to written on the top level domain individually. This case is where this gem can be useful.
TopLevelDomainCookieJar is used in a very much like the PermanentCookieJar. It is a write only cookie jar. The cookies are accessed through the normal accessor.
Write a top level domain cookie:
cookies.tld[:all_access_cookie] = "All subdomains can read this."
Read the cookie:
cookies[:all_access_cookie] # All subdomains can read this.
You can chain the top level domain cookie jar:
cookies.tld.signed[:tamper_proof_all_access_cookie] = "All subdomains can read this." cookies.signed[:tamper_proof_all_access_cookie] # All subdomains can read this.
