This middleware enables compression of http responses.

Currently supported compression algorithms:

* gzip
* identity (no transformation)

The middleware automatically detects when compression is supported and allowed. For example no transformation is made when a cache directive of 'no-transform' is present, or when the response status code is one that doesn't allow an entity body.

new(app, options = {})

Creates Rack::Deflater middleware.

app

rack app instance

options

hash of deflater options, i.e. 'if' - a lambda enabling / disabling deflation based on returned boolean value

e.g use Rack::Deflater, :if => lambda { |env, status, headers, body| body.map(&:bytesize).reduce(0, :+) > 512 }

'include' - a list of content types that should be compressed

# File lib/rack/deflater.rb, line 26
def initialize(app, options = {})
  @app = app

  @condition = options[:if]
  @compressible_types = options[:include]
