Brwsr

Do some browser detection with Ruby. Includes ActionController integration.

This is just a namespaced fork of github.com/fnando/browser. I may add features that may not be sent upstream due to issues maintaining the two.

Installation

gem install brwsr

Usage

require "rubygems"
require "brwsr"

brwsr = Brwsr::Browser.new(:ua => "some string", :accept_language => "en-us")
brwsr.name        # readable brwsr name
brwsr.safari?
brwsr.opera?
brwsr.chrome?
brwsr.mobile?
brwsr.firefox?
brwsr.ie?
brwsr.ie6?        # this goes up to 10
brwsr.capable?    # supports some CSS 3
brwsr.platform    # return :mac, :windows, :linux or :other
brwsr.mac?
brwsr.windows?
brwsr.linux?
brwsr.meta        # an array with several attributes
brwsr.to_s        # the meta info joined by space

See the tests for more examples.

Rails integration

Just add it to the Gemfile or `environment.rb`, depending of your Rails version.

gem "brwsr"         #=> Rails 3
config.gem "brwsr"  #=> Rails 2

This adds a helper method called `brwsr`, that inspects your current user agent.

<% if brwsr.ie6? %>
  <p class="disclaimer">You're running an older IE version. Please update it!</p>
<% end %>
