Rack:GridFS is a Rack middleware for creating HTTP endpoints for files stored in MongoDB's GridFS. You can configure a prefix string which will be used to match the path of a request and supply an id for looking up the file in the GridFS store.
If the prefix is “gridfs”, then the id will be be “someobjectid”.
Mongo Driver Compatibility Notes
This version is currently based off of mongo-0.20.1.
As of mongo-0.19.1, there have been significant changes to GridFS. I do not plan to support versions of the mongo driver prior to 0.19. There are some compatibility issues with mongo-0.19 vs. mongo-0.20 (Mongo::ObjectID vs. BSON::ObjectID). For now, I am choosing to support mongo-0.20.
sudo gem install skinandbones-rack-gridfs --source=http://gems.github.com
require 'rack/gridfs' use Rack::GridFS, :hostname => 'localhost', :port => 27017, :database => 'test', :prefix => 'gridfs'
You must specify MongoDB database details:
hostname: the hostname/IP where the MongoDB server is running. Default 'localhost'.
port: the port of the MongoDB server. Default 27017.
database: the MongoDB database to connect to.
prefix: a string used to match against incoming paths and route to through the middleware. Default 'gridfs'.
