SSL Requirement
===============
SSL requirement adds a declarative way of specifying that certain actions
should only be allowed to run under SSL, and if they're accessed without it,
they should be redirected.
Example:
class ApplicationController < ActiveRecord::Base
include SslRequirement
end
class AccountController < ApplicationController
ssl_required :signup, :payment
ssl_allowed :index
def signup
# Non-SSL access will be redirected to SSL
end
def payment
# Non-SSL access will be redirected to SSL
end
def index
# This action will work either with or without SSL
end
def other
# SSL access will be redirected to non-SSL
end
end
You can overwrite the protected method ssl_required? to rely on other things
than just the declarative specification. Say, only premium accounts get SSL.
P.S.: Beware when you include the SslRequirement module. At the time of
inclusion, it'll add the before_filter that validates the declarations. Some
times you'll want to run other before_filters before that. They should then be
declared ahead of including this module.
