Site-wide HTTPS difficult to enforce programatically

Reported by rabbitt | April 23rd, 2010 @ 06:40 AM

It would be nice if there was a simple way to flip a setting and have all generated urls use HTTPS proto instead of HTTP. So, I threw together a quick patch (attached) to do just that (granted against an older version of actionpack - so your mileage may vary).

To force all routes to use 'https' you would simply do the following in your routes.rb (or environment.rb, or wherever...):

ActionController.UrlWriter.default_proto = 'https'

    It would be better if this option was called default_protocol rather than default_proto. Could you also try applying this patch to master and writing some tests for it?

    Attached is code patch against rails3 edge.

    Could not add any test because introduction of app.config is causing problem and I don't really know how to inject app in the concerned class/module in test environment. If anyone has any tips on how to write test then let me know.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help.

This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.
