(Quick post)

Searched the fine web and didn't find a quick answer to how to redirect an http request to https in Mojolicious. I wanted to insure that logins were always secure. Finally cobbled together a solution and thought I should share and maybe get some improvements.

  1. Run 2 webservers: one to handle http and the other to handle https, which for me is two incantations of hypnotoad
  2. Add a route in your http App
  3. Add a sub to the http Controller
    sub https_redirect { my $self = shift; my $secure = $self->req->url->to_abs->scheme('https')->port(443); $self->redirect_to($secure); }
  4. Profit!

All the sub does is redirect the request to the new protocol at the same url. I've seen a method in the docs to a is_secure method which could be useful somewhere. Also, I tried using $r->any('/login'), but it doesn't work for me and I'm moving on.

Yes, I probably could've gotten a better answer inside 2 minutes on IRC (people are so very helpful), but it never occurs to me until afterwards.

Sometimes I can think of 6 impossible LDAP attributes before breakfast. It's that time of year again!
