Rack:GridFS is a Rack middleware for creating HTTP endpoints for files stored in MongoDB's GridFS. You can configure a prefix string which will be used to match the path of a request and supply an id for looking up the file in the GridFS store.
If the prefix is “gridfs”, then the id will be be “someobjectid”.
Mongo Driver Compatibility Notes
This version is currently based on mongo-1.1+. As there were significant changes to the GridFS API prior to v1.0, you may have luck with the git-tagged version 0.2.0 of this library with earlier versions of the driver.
gem install rack-gridfs
require 'rack/gridfs' use Rack::GridFS, :hostname => 'localhost', :port => 27017, :database => 'test', :prefix => 'gridfs'
You must specify MongoDB database details:
hostname: the hostname/IP where the MongoDB server is running. Default 'localhost'.
port: the port of the MongoDB server. Default 27017.
database: the MongoDB database to connect to.
prefix: a string used to match against incoming paths and route to through the middleware. Default 'gridfs'.
