NAME

Plack::Middleware::NoMultipleSlashes - Remove multiple slashes in your paths automatically

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.001

SYNOPSIS

Pure Plack:



    # in your app.psgi
    use Plack::Builder;

    my $app = sub { ... };

    builder {
        enable NoMultipleSlashes;
        $app;
    };



Or in your Dancer app:



    # in config.yml
    plack_middlewares:
        - [ NoMultipleSlashes ]



DESCRIPTION

In short: this removes all multiple slashes from your <B>PATH_INFOB>. Read on, if you care why.

Multiple slashes in requests are a common problem, which many share. Apparently, the RFC states that you should be able to expect different results from http://server/ and http://server// (notice the second slash), so if the frameworks wish to maintain RFC compatibility, they cannot remove those extra slashes for you.

While you can handle this issue in a reverse proxy, in a rewrite module or in your code, I find it more comfortable to have Plack take care of it in the thin layer called Middlewares.

By enabling this middleware, all multiple slashes in your requests will automatically be cut. //hello///world becomes /hello/world. Simple as that.

ORIGIN

This Plack middleware was written originally after the issue was raised in the Dancer (<http://perldancer.org>) community.

If you’re using Dancer, this is the prefered way to handle this issue.
