HTTP 1.1 by the spec, specially headers.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'http_objects'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install http_objects


#require 'rubygems'
require 'http_objects'

headers =

# it's a normal hash (for normal keys)
headers["key"] = "value"

# for HTTP headers, you have objects
headers["Content-Type"] = "text/html;Charset=utf-8"

# one can check if header exist
puts headers.content_type? # => true

# one can access raw value
puts headers.content_type! # => "text/html;Charset=utf-8"

# one can access the value
puts headers.content_type.value # => "text/html"

# one can read directives
puts headers.content_type['charset'] # => "utf-8"

# finally one can access the object
puts headers.content_type.inspect # => #<HttpObjects::EntityHeaders::ContentType ...>
