Gem Version Build Status RubyGems Code Climate Test Coverage

Backport #sanitize_sql_like method from Rails 4 for Rails 3.

Sanitizes a string so that it is safe to use within an SQL LIKE statement.

This method uses escape_character to escape all occurrences of “", ”_“ and ”%“

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'sanitize_sql_like'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sanitize_sql_like

Usage

Prevent SQL injection using LIKE operator in SQL query:

# Bad
User.where("nickname LIKE ?", "%#{params[:nickname]}%")

# Good
User.where("nickname LIKE ?", "%#{User.send(:sanitize_sql_like, params[:nickname])}%")

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
