            The root of the problem seems to be bundler. What operating system and Ruby version are you using? It may be a problem with old OpenSSL library, so you can not install bundler and everything after it.

            If you are using jRuby (your gem list output tells so), your problem seems to be the same as described in link. And there is a solution as well.

            Maybe you forgot to set 2.1.2 version of ruby as global? (rbenv set global 2.1.2)

            Should I copy/paste all controllers and routes from Spree to my own app?
            Asked 2019-Jan-28 at 17:26

            I'm in process of learning RoR, and obviously Spree and few things aren't clear to me. I'm not totally familiar with Rails engines neither.

            My question is should I copy all controllers and routes from Spree github page and then to overwrite them or they are already "booted" through engine?

            Also, I noticed that some people use Deface to overwrite things on their own applications. Isn't it easier to copy/paste from github code and then modify it or there is some trick with it?




            Answered 2019-Jan-28 at 17:26

            The whole idea of gems is that they are package distribution mechanism that you can use instead of copy-pasting code.

            Most modern languages have some sort of package distribution. Ruby's package manager of choice is Bundler.

            It should always be used instead of copy-pasting because:

            1. Copy-pasting is error prone and tedious.
            2. You're not bloating your code repository with vendor code which makes it easier to maintain.
            3. Package managers can do dependency tree resolution to ensure that your dependencies are compatible with each other.
            4. Its not 1995 and copy-pasting a library will cast doubts on your competency.

            If you need to modify a gem for whatever reason you can fork the repository and tell bundler to use your fork. But in most cases this is a last resort as Ruby is an extremely flexible language.

            My question is should I copy all controllers and routes from Spree github page and then to overwrite them or they are already "booted" through engine?

            No. Just mount the gem. In all likelihood its very configurable and provides options to customize it to your hearts intent without changing any of the gems code.

            Or in many cases you can just use object oriented programming to configure your own subtypes of the controllers provided by the gem.

            Deface is used to modify views after they are rendered. Its basically a more refined version of using a regular expression and thus quite hacky if the problem can be solved in the first place by using partials or helpers to make the code more modular. It has nothing to do with routes or controllers.



            Rails 4.2 overriding views. Is Deface really standalone?
            Asked 2018-Sep-25 at 12:55

            I'm trying to override view with Deface.

            In manual creators called it standalone, so I guess that it's possible to use this gem without using spree... But I'm not sure anymore because nearly every tutorial/question/anything I found about Deface was related to spree.

            However I tried. what I done was adding a line to Gemfile

            gem 'deface'

            and running

            bundle install

            which for sure installed deface gem.

            Then I made route like this:

            R : Browsing files in a folder and extracting names and data from it
            Asked 2017-Dec-12 at 17:20

            I need to extract some data from spreadsheets, there are many of them (more than a hundred) so I thought it would be faster to do that with some R script. (Maybe that is my first error, but I would like to give it a try and improve myself at manipulating files and data using R.)

            All these files are in the same folders, most of them have name of a meteorological station or city, only some files are irrelevant. Moreover they don't have all the same extensions: some are .csv, other .xls, some .txt, .zip or .r (those are the unwanted files)

            What I want to do is to browse my folder, pick the name of the file if it's relevant to me, only keep the name of the city/station, open the file, gather the information I need, close it and go to the next file.

            Also, some cities have several stations or there are several files for the same station. For instance:

            Redmine / error on plugin migration
            Asked 2017-Sep-24 at 15:35

            I try to migrate Redmine 0.9.1 to 3.4.2 and one migration plugin failed. The plugins is question

            My plugins migration failed with this command.



            Answered 2017-Sep-24 at 15:35

            It's not really the migration that fails but redmine's initialization. As such, you will not be able to start redmine at all.

            The cause is probably because of changes to the all method with rails 4 (although I haven't been able to spot the exact change). But what that plugin does is trying to define an alias for the all method and that method does not exist (any more).

            As the last change to the plugin repository was two years ago, you are probably out of luck when trying to migrate the plugin along unless you want to step up and maintain the plugin/issue a PR to the repo yourself.



            Using a drop down select menu instead of radio buttons for Spree 3.1.0 variants (Rails 4.2)
            Asked 2017-Jul-14 at 09:02

            As the title says, I'm using Spree 3.1.0 on Rails 4.2 to build a store. On the product Show page, I'm trying to use Deface to replace the radio buttons with a drop-down, as per the client's request. I have the dropdown functioning, but the price doesn't update on the page when you select an option like it did for the radio buttons.

            Hardening and Performance Tuning in JBoss EAP 7
            Asked 2017-May-12 at 17:42

            I read through the standard guideline of JBoss EAP 7. It tells how to secure ports, increase the JVM options but does not specifically how to calculate and archive specific measurement. Referencing Apache practice, what should I do if I need to

            1. Hide the JBoss Version number, and other sensitive information
            2. Make sure JBoss is running under its own user account and group
            3. Ensure that files outside the webapp root folder are not served
            4. Turn off directory browsing Turn off server side includes
            5. Turn off CGI execution
            6. Don't allow JBoss to follow symbolic links
            7. Turning off multiple Options
            8. Turn off support for .htaccess files
            9. Lower the Timeout value
            10. Limiting large requests
            11. Limiting the size of an XML Body
            12. Disable Trace HTTP Request
            13. Use only TLS, Disable SSLv2, SSLv3
            14. Do not open 80 port by default (use SSL only)
            15. Modify web applications to set the HttpOnly attribute for all cookies
            16. Support simultaneous connection process to 400 and maximum connection over 3000
            17. Prevent from Injection flaws, such as SQL, OS, and LDAP injection occur when untrusted data is sent to an interpreter as part of a command or query. The attacker’s hostile data can trick the interpreter into executing unintended commands or accessing data without proper authorization.
            18. Prevent from attackers to compromise passwords, keys, or session tokens, or to exploit other implementation flaws to assume other users’ identities.
            19. Prevent from XSS flaws occur whenever an application takes untrusted data and sends it to a web browser without proper validation or escaping. XSS allows attackers to execute scripts in the victim’s browser which can hijack user sessions, deface web sites, or redirect the user to malicious sites.
            20. Prevent from Insecure Direct Object References.
            21. Prevent from A CSRF attack forces a logged-on victim’s browser to send a forged HTTP request, including the victim’s session cookie and any other automatically included authentication information, to a vulnerable web application. This allows the attacker to force the victim’s browser to generate requests the vulnerable application thinks are legitimate requests from the victim.

            I think you might have understood SQL injection. Incorrectly Handled Query Assembly seems to mean incorrect construction of query string.
