Absolution

Want to know if a string is an absolute URL? Heck, want to construct an absolute URL from a base URL and a path? This is your lucky day!

There's not much to this thing, and what's there exists only to serve the needs that I've had for this sort of thing.

That said, pull requests are totally welcome :)

Gem Setup

gem install absolution

# Gemfile
gem 'absolution'

Basic usage (class methods)

require 'absolution'

Absolution.absolute_url?('blah')
  => false
Absolution.absolute_url?('/blah')
  => false
Absolution.absolute_url?('http://blah')
  => true

Absolution.construct_absolute_url('https://base.url', 'blah')
  => 'https://base.url/blah'

Other usage (mixin)

Want a class to know how to do this stuff on its own?

require 'absolution'

class SomeClass
  include Absolution

  def absolute_url_to(somefile)
    return somefile if absolute_url?(somefile)
    construct_absolute_url('http://base.url', somefile)
  end
end
