Dear all,

Would it be possible to get the current user that logged into local
computer
with Ruby? I’m building an intranet apps and would like to get the
username
that logged into the computer they are using.

Thanks in advance

You can do the following:
1.

ENV[‘USER’] on Unix
ENV[‘USERNAME’] on Windows

require ‘etc’
Etc.getlogin (on all platforms)

Thanks,
–Vladimir
