Protocol-relative URLs

Reported by Stephen Celis | October 9th, 2010 @ 03:33 PM | in 3.1

ActionPack doesn't support the generation of protocol-relative URLs right now, e.g. "//", which the browser will follow with "http" or "https", accordingly.

I've found protocol-relative URLs to be especially helpful when providing embed code for users, simplifying the logic to load JS off the right protocol.

This patch adds support and tests the following methods of attaining protocol-relative URLs:

    embed_code_path(@widget, :protocol => false)
    embed_code_path(@widget, :protocol => '//')

The patch also fixes the case where a protocol may be declared with ":" as the separator (e.g., "http:", as JavaScript provides).
