module Roda::RodaPlugins::Halt

  1. lib/roda/plugins/halt.rb

The halt plugin augments the standard request halt method to allow the response status, body, or headers to be changed when halting.

After loading the halt plugin:

plugin :halt

You can call the halt method with an integer to set the response status and return:

route do |r|
  r.halt(403)
end

Or set the response body and return:

route do |r|
  r.halt('body')
end

Or set both:

route do |r|
  r.halt(403, 'body')
end

Or set response status, headers, and body:

route do |r|
  r.halt(403, {'Content-Type'=>'text/csv'}, 'body')
end

As supported by default, you can still pass an array which contains a rack response:

route do |r|
  r.halt([403, {'Content-Type'=>'text/csv'}, ['body']])
end

Note that there is a difference between providing status, headers, and body as separate arguments and providing them as a single rack response array. With a rack response array, the values are used directly, while with 3 arguments, the headers given are merged into the existing headers and the given body is written to the existing response body.

If using other plugins that recognize additional types of match block responses, such as symbol_views and json, you can pass those additional types to r.halt:

plugin :halt
plugin :symbol_views
plugin :json
route do |r|
  r.halt(:template)
  r.halt(500, [{'error'=>'foo'}])
  r.halt(500, 'header=>'value', :other_template)
end

Note that when using the json plugin with the halt plugin, you cannot return a array as a single argument and have it be converted to json, since it would be interpreted as a rack response. You must use call r.halt with either two or three argument forms in that case.
