How do I request a HTTPS page?

I would like to access a https page from irb

https://www.etsy.com/oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=aaa&oauth_token=bbb

I have been unable to find an example to do this that works.

Is there a good resource on how to do this with Ruby Net::HTTP ?

Does anyone what the general process of this is?

Thank you,

Sam

Thank you,

A simple google search for “ruby https net http” yields:

http://snippets.dzone.com/posts/show/788

maybe you can start from here and make some tests.
Or show us what you have tried and what are the errors?

What platform are you on?

If it’s Ubuntu or Debian, note that you will be missing lib/net/https.rb
unless you install the libopenssl-ruby package.

From Lucid onwards you can install “ruby-full” which consolidates all
the shrapnel (see below). Note that this will also install emacs as a
dependency unless you do:

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ruby-full

Description: Ruby full installation
For many good reasons, the Ruby programming language is split in many
small different packages. Installing this package will make sure you
have
all the packages that add up to a full Ruby installation, with the
exception
of the Tcl/Tk bindings for Ruby, which are only recommended.
.
This package installs the dependencies for the current stable
version of Ruby, which is 1.8.

sudo apt-get install ruby-full --no-install-recommends

apt-cache shows what packages are available to install, not what are
actually installed. Try:

dpkg-query -l | grep ruby

to see what you have. If you don’t have libopenssl-ruby1.8 then do:

sudo apt-get install ruby-full --no-recommends

Then you can see what files you have:

dpkg-query -L libopenssl-ruby1.8

and this will include /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/https.rb

Does

require 'net/https'

work in irb? Then look in /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/net/https.rb for the
documentation, including sample code.

Jesus.

First I will include my code and then 2 responses.

require ‘net/http’
require ‘net/https’
require ‘rubygems’
require ‘oauth’

oauth_consumer_key = “xxx”
oauth_consumer_secret = “yyy”

@consumer = OAuth::Consumer.new(oauth_consumer_key,
oauth_consumer_secret, {:site => “http://openapi.etsy.com”,
:oauth_callback => “oob”, :request_token_path =>
“/v2/sandbox/oauth/request_token”, :authorize_path =>
“/v2/sandbox/oauth/authorize”, :access_token_path =>
“/v2/sandbox/oauth/access_token” })

@request_token = @consumer.get_request_token

http = Net::HTTP.new(‘etsy.com’, 443)
http.use_ssl = true
path =
“oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=#{oauth_consumer_key}&oauth_token=#{@request_token.token}”

resp = http.get(path)
puts 'Code = ’ + resp.code
puts 'Message = ’ + resp.message
resp.each {|key, val| puts key + ’ = ’ + val}

done

Here is the response the code yielded:

$ ruby sec.rb
warning: peer certificate won’t be verified in this SSL session
Code = 301
Message = Moved Permanently
location =
http://www.etsy.com/oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=xxx&oauth_token=yyy
expires = Thu, 19 Nov 1981 08:52:00 GMT
connection = close
content-type = text/html; charset=UTF-8
server = Apache
date = Wed, 08 Sep 2010 12:43:15 GMT
content-length = 0
cache-control = no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0,
pre-check=0
pragma = no-cache

###########################################################

I then used the same code except I changed the path variable to include
the ‘https’

path =
https://oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=#{oauth_consumer_key}&oauth_token=#{@request_token.token}

Then I received this response:

$ ruby sec.rb
warning: peer certificate won’t be verified in this SSL session
Code = 302
Message = Found
location =
http://etsy.comhttps://etsy.com/oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=xxx&oauth_token=yyy
connection = close
server = BigIP
content-length = 0

#end

In the second response the location is weird. It did however produce a
“302”.

In the first response the location says: HTTP, but the url should be
HTTPS

I then used the same code except I changed the path variable to include
the ‘https’

path =
https://oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=#{oauth_consumer_key}&oauth_token=#{@request_token.token}

Sorry, I should have wrote:

path =
https://etsy.com/oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=#{oauth_consumer_key}&oauth_token=#{@request_token.token}

Yeah, irb returns true when I require it. It seems like it only works in
a certain order however. Usually it has to be second. I am not sure why.
Thanks for the tip. I didn’t realize that there is documentation there.

http = Net::HTTP.new(‘etsy.com’, 443)

The redirect says you should be using www.etsy.com, not etsy.com

http.use_ssl = true
path =
“oauth/signin?oauth_consumer_key=#{oauth_consumer_key}&oauth_token=#{@request_token.token}”

Should have a leading slash on the path. (But not http:// or https://)

If you still get a redirect, then maybe it really wants you to use http
and not https. That is, it seems to be redirecting
https://etsy.com/anyoldjunk to http://etsy.com/anyoldjunk

I added that leading ‘/’ to the path variable. I have also added the www
that you have suggested.

You said that maybe it wants to used http so I tried changing the port
number from 443 to 80.

I get this:

$ruby sec.rb
warning: peer certificate won’t be verified in this SSL session
Code = 302
Message = Moved Temporarily
location =
http://www.etsy.com/login.php?from_page=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.etsy.com%2Foauth%2Fsignin%3Foauth_consumer_key%3Drxfkum3ddkdhyckduekbtj7w%26oauth_token%3Dagwt6cvhqv2ve5mvuy3fc7zs

content-length = 26
content-encoding = gzip
cache-control = no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0,
pre-check=0

��

I am not sure what that last part is. I think it is some kind of
hexidecimal code. Either way, that is what it returned.

No, it must be 443 for https. For 80 (http) you would not say use_ssl =
true.

I suggest you keep it at 443 and use_ssl=true, and show what that
response that gives.

Show what it gives in that case. However I think this is no longer a
ruby question, it’s more of an oauth question, so you might get a better
response in an oauth forum.

hexidecimal code. Either way, that is what it returned.

Try using inspect, e.g.

resp.each {|key, val| puts key.inspect + ’ = ’ + val.inspect}
puts resp.body.inspect

If you still get that junk, then it’s coming from later on in your
program.

What do you mean by “only works”? If it returns false, that is fine too.
It simply means that the library has already been loaded. If it couldn’t
load it, it would raise an exception.
