Genius::Blocker

Build Status

Genius Blocker is a piece of Rack Middleware designed to prevent unwanted annotations by News Genius.

The middleware injects a small bit of JavaScript code into the <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.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'genius-blocker'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install genius-blocker

Usage

For most applications, you can insert middleware into the config.ru file in the root of the application.

A simple 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
