Simple plugin for sanitizing embed widgets. Uses a white list approach for tags, attributes, and domains. I will be adding to the list of allowed domains.
Just add “include EmbedWhitelist” to wherever you want to check for valid embed code. That class will now have access to the parse_embed(some_embed_code) method. An EmbedWhitelist::DomainError will be raised if the domain is not in the list of allowed domains. All tags and attributes not listed in the config will be stripped out.
class EmbedWidget < ActiveRecord::Base include EmbedWhitelist before_save :check_embed_code def check_embed_code self.embed_code = parse_embed(self.embed_code) end end
sudo gem install embed_whitelist
