Private Rack middleware purpose is to protect your Rack application from anonymous via a secret code form.
$ gem install rack-private
require 'rack-private' use Rack::Private, :code => 'secret'
You can also define multiple codes.
use Rack::Private, :codes => ['secret', 'super-secret']
And provide your own template.
use Rack::Private, :code => 'secret', :template_path => Rails.root.join("app/templates/private.html")
You can specify exceptions, using strings or regular expressions
use Rack::Private, :code => 'secret', :except => ["public"]
This will allow access to any URL containing 'public'. If you want more control, use a regular expression:
use Rack::Private, :code => 'secret', :except => [/public$/]
This will only allow access to URLs that end in 'public'. You can use any expressions you want.
If you have a lot of exceptions, you can specify a block
use Rack::Private, :code => 'secret' do except /foo$/ except 'public' end
You can also specify a HTTP method in the block form
use Rack::Private, :code => 'secret' do except /foo$/, :method => 'post' except 'public', :method => :get end
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
