Rails / Rack: getting query parameters from canonical_host middleware
I am using Rack Canonical Host middleware ( https://github.com/tylerhunt/rack-canonical-host ) with Rails to force www for all root requests (example.com becomes www.example.com). However, if a visitor is trying to access a valid subdomain of our application, we obviously don't want to force www. Here's an example using middleware:
Rails.application.config.middleware.use Rack::CanonicalHost do # the following return value will be used to set the canonical host 'www.example.com' end
As you can see, this is somewhat static, which is a problem. However, if I had access to the request parameters (e.g. subdomain, domain, etc.), I could check them and redirect accordingly (and only if needed).
Anyone have pointers?
