Gzip / Deflate support for ActiveResource

Reported by Bart ten Brinke | February 25th, 2009 @ 01:16 PM | in 3.x

At the moment ActiveResource does not support gzip/deflate. As it does use XML as a transfer medium, this becomes highly inefficient with large datasets.

Gzip is one of the oldest remedies for this, and all major application servers for rails support it, but activeresource doesn't.

To enable: have ZLib installed and add this tou your ActiveResource base class: base.headers['Accept-Encoding'] = 'deflate'
