Hi fellow coders,
I have recently been implementing an API and used Basic Auth as the
authentication method. Besides doing the authentication part, I need to
extract the email from the request header for other usages.
Currently, we can extract username the following way:
But I wanted to propose to add two new methods: One for getting the
username, and the other one for taking the password, so that we do not need
to use array indexes to get each one. Then we can refactor
prepare the response from these new methods.
This sounds as something really simple, that may not be that important, but
I believe it greatly fits with the central principle of Ruby, as Matz says:
“Ruby is designed to make programmers happy.”
If this does resonate with you, I would be more than happy and grateful to
Thank you very much.
