Build Status Gem Version Dependency Status Code Climate Test Coverage License: MIT

acme-plugin is a Ruby on Rails helper for Let's Encrypt service for retrieving SSL certificates (without using sudo, like original letsencrypt client does). It uses acme-client gem for communication with Let's Encrypt server.

Important note: As of version 0.0.3 of this gem dependency to SQLite has been removed (it can be used on Heroku - certificates will be displayed on console, after that please follow SSL-Endpoint guide).

Installation

For detailed installation guide please visit Installation-guide wiki page.

Usage

Run acme_plugin rake task:

$ rake acme_plugin

If everything was done correctly, then you should see output similar to the one below:

I, [2015-12-06T17:28:15.582308 #25931]  INFO -- : Loading private key...
I, [2015-12-06T17:28:15.582592 #25931]  INFO -- : Trying to register at Let's Encrypt service...

I, [2015-12-06T17:28:22.174312 #25931]  INFO -- : Certificate has been generated.

and in output_cert_dir directory you should have four files:

  • domain.name-cert.pem - Domain certificate
  • domain.name-chain.pem - Chained certificate
  • domain.name-fullchain.pem - Full chain of certificates
  • domain.name-key.pem - Domain certificate key

Or if running on Heroku (certificates content removed for brevity):

$ heroku run rake acme_plugin
