Sinatra Extension: redirect with flash

Shortly: sinatra-redirect-with-flash provides redirect helper that can set proper flash (rack-flash3 or sinatra-flash) before the redirection.

In fact, every time you set a flash parameter the very next step is often to perform your redirect:

post '/posts/?' do
  @post = Post.create(params)
  flash[:notice] = 'The post was successfully created'
  redirect "/posts/#{@post.id}"
end

With sinatra-redirect-with-flash you can do one-line redirects. For instance, to rewrite the above example:

post '/posts/?' do
  @post = Post.create(params)
  redirect "/posts/#{@post.id}", :notice => 'The post was successfully created'
end

Installation

If you use bundler, simply specify sinatra-redirect-with-flash as a dependency in a Gemfile in your project's root:

gem 'rack-flash3'
gem 'sinatra-redirect-with-flash'

and run bundle install.

Otherwise install the gem as usual:

[sudo] gem install sinatra-redirect-with-flash

Example

require 'rubygems'
require 'sinatra'
require 'rack-flash'
require 'sinatra/redirect_with_flash'

enable :sessions

post '/sessions/new' do
  redirect '/secret', :notice => 'Logged in'
  # predefined keys are: :notice, :error, :warning, :alert, :info, :success
end

get '/foo' do
  redirect '/bar', 301, :notice => 'redirect with 301 code'
end

get '/archive' do
  redirect '/posts/', :flash => {:my_msg => 'Moving on!'}      
end

Note that if your application subclasses Sinatra::Base (modular app), you have to register the extension in your subclass:

helpers Sinatra::RedirectWithFlash

Requirements

Either rack-flash3 or sinatra-flash.
