Note

This project is no longer maintained. It was written during darker days of the web, when handling the issues that prompted it's existence was very time consuming. Refer to client-side techniques for graceful degradation.

rack-noie

rack-noie is the coolest rack middleware ever created. And it is so because it does everyone a favor: it shows the way out of your website to poor souls out there using Internet Explorer 6.

installation

Add to your Gemfile

gem "rack-noie", :require => "noie"

Rails Usage

Add to your config/application.rb

config.middleware.use Rack::NoIE

By default, this will redirect IE6 (and below) to MS's upgrade site

No IE-8

For an updated slant (only let IE9 in):

config.middleware.use Rack::NoIE, {:redirect => "http://ie8nomore.com/", 
                                   :minimum => 9}

No IE FOREVS

config.middleware.use Rack::NoIE, {:redirect => "/why-i-dont-support-ie.html", 
                                   :minimum => 29}

Rack / Sinatra usage

use Rack::NoIE, :redirect => '/noieplease.html'

the above will redirect to a page noieplease.html in your website. You can redirect to a URL as well, like so

use Rack::NoIE, :redirect => 'http://slashdot.org'

or let the default kick in

use Rack::NoIE

disclaimer

I'm a nice guy. I'm so nice that the default URL points to Microsoft's IE8 upgrade page.
