Cookies - Written by Javascript Read by Rails

Is there a way for Rails to read cookies written by a piece ofJavascript
code and read by Rails? – I am integrating a third party software
service which writes a cookie to the user’s browser which contains
routing information. I need to make sure that the Rails app and the
third party app both have the same information, all the time.

Thanks.

Sure. Just make sure that your JavaScript is writing the cookie to the
current domain, and you should be able to read it with
cookies[:yourKeyName] where:yourKeyName is the “name” assigned to the
cookie from JavaScript.

IF you haven’t settled on a cookie wrapper, google cookiejar.js for an
elegant solution.
