Genius Blocker is a piece of Rack Middleware designed to prevent unwanted annotations by News Genius.
<head></head> of a website in order to force a redirect to the original
website whenever anyone attempts to prepend
genius.it/ onto a website's URL
for annotation purposes.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install genius-blocker
For most applications, you can insert middleware into the config.ru file in the root of the application.
config.ru in a Rails application might look
like this after adding Genius::Blocker:
require ::File.expand_path('../config/environment', __FILE__) use Genius::Blocker run MyRailsApp::Application
