Build::URI provides unform handling of paths (e.g.
/var/lib), URIs (e.g.
http://www.google.com/search) and triples (e.g.
[email protected]:ioquatix/build-uri). It supports logical concatenation of all combinations of these, and a nil token for convenience.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install build-uri
Some examples of concatenation:
::['http://www.github.com/ioquatix'] + 'build-uri' # Absolute URI is concatenated with relative path, generating 'http://www.github.com/ioquatix/build-uri'. ::['var'] + 'lib' # Concatenates relative paths, generating 'var/lib'. ::['/usr/bin'] + '/usr/local/bin' # RHS is absolute path, so it is returned. ::['http://www.github.com/'] + ::['[email protected]:ioquatix/build-uri'] # RHS is absolute URI, so it is returned. ::[nil] + 'etc' # LHS is nil, so RHS is returned.
Build::URI::EMPTY is available which always yields the right-hand side when merging.
uri = ::[value]
Is it a local path or a (potentially) remote resource?
if uri.local? File.read(uri.to_path) else # ... curl end
root = ::["https://www.github.com/ioquatix"] path = ::["build-uri"] (root + path).to_s # => "https://www.github.com/ioquatix/build-uri"
This library does not implement URI encoding/decoding. It is expected that the inputs are valid encoded strings, and thus the outputs will be too.
This is not a general purposes URI handling library, but is focused on providing correct programmatic path concatenation for teapot.
