Overview

Borrowed and modified from: https://github.com/lostisland/faraday_middleware/blob/master/lib/faraday_middleware/response/follow_redirects.rb

Public: Follow HTTP 301, 302, 303, and 307 redirects for GET, PATCH, POST, PUT, and DELETE requests.

This middleware does not follow the HTTP specification for HTTP 302, by default, in that it follows the improper implementation used by most major web browsers which forces the redirected request to become a GET request regardless of the original request method.

For HTTP 301, 302, and 303, the original request is transformed into a GET request to the response Location, by default. However, with standards compliance enabled, a 302 will instead act in accordance with the HTTP specification, which will replay the original request to the received Location, just as with a 307.

For HTTP 307, the original request is replayed to the response Location, including original HTTP request method (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH), original headers, and original body.

This middleware currently only works with synchronous requests; in other words, it doesn't support parallelism.

Constructor Details

#initialize(app, options = {}) ⇒ FollowRedirects

Public: Initialize the middleware.

options - An options Hash (default: {}):

 limit - A Numeric redirect limit (default: 3)
 standards_compliant - A Boolean indicating whether to respect
                       the HTTP spec when following 302
                       (default: false)

        (e.g. ['cookie1', 'cookie2']) to choose kept cookies
        or :all to keep all cookies.
