Rack middleware for Sinatra that disables cookies when content being served is a static asset. Some HTTP accelerators (particularly Varnish) will not cache when Set-Cookie is present. This prevents files from not being cached. It is kind of a hack.

Installation and Usage

gem install sinatra-cookie_thief

For classic-style:

require 'sinatra'
require 'sinatra/cookie_thief'
register Sinatra::CookieThief
enable :sessions

For classy-style:

require 'sinatra/base'
class App < Sinatra::Base
  register Sinatra::CookieThief
  enable :sessions
