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")
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.
