Net::HTTP SSL Fix Ruby Gem
Net::HTTP certificate authority file hack. Very useful for
authoring Ruby-based HTTP clients that must run on Windows.
Get rid of this lovely error for good, especially on Windows:
SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B: certificate verify failed
/ (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻!
This gem basically configures Net::HTTP to use a certificate authority PEM file downloaded from the cURL project and included directly into the gem. This requires that you periodically update this gem as we do.
Add to your
gem 'net_http_ssl_fix', require: 'net_http_ssl_fix'
Every now and then, you may get the
SSL_connect error again, especially if you
don't make any attempts to update your install of this gem.
In the event that this gem isn't updated with the latest
cacert.pem from the
cURL project, you can submit a pull request with the file at
replaced with a freshly-downloaded version from this URL:
Credit Where Credit Is Due
This tiny gem is indebted to John Bachir, particularly his Earth-shattering Gist, How to set the certificate file for Net::HTTP library-wide.
