New Features

  • A symbol_status plugin has been added for using symbolic status names in response.status=:

    class App < Roda
      plugin :symbol_status
    
      route do |r|
        r.is "needs_authorization"
          response.status = :unauthorized
        end
      end

Other Improvements

  • The middleware plugin will now also run the application's middleware when the application is used as middleware. For example, if you have the following code in your config.ru file:

    class App < Roda
      plugin :csrf
      plugin :middleware
      route{}
    end
    
    use App

    previously, the csrf protection would not be enforced, as it uses a middleware instead of being part of the application. Now, csrf protection will be enforced. This change makes it so the Roda application operates the same way regardless of whether it is run as the rack application or used as rack middleware.

    Because of this change, if you are nesting roda applications using the middleware plugin, you may need to use the middleware plugin's :env_var option to specify the environment variable used to indicate to the Roda application that it is being run as middleware.

Backwards Compatibility

  • See above changes to the middleware plugin if you are using middleware inside a Roda application that uses the middleware plugin.
