Reading/writing cookies via a middleware in Rails 4.0

In my Rails 3.2 setup I had the following middleware:

module Rack
class Locale
def initialize(app)
@app = app
end

def call(env)
  request = Rack::Request.new(env)
  params = request.params
  cookies = request.env['action_dispatch.cookies']
  session = request.env['rack.session']


  requested_locale = params['locale'] || cookies['locale'] || I18n.

default_locale

  session['locale'] = cookies['locale'] = locale


  @app.call(env)
end

end
end

It was working fine until I’ve upgraded to Rails 4.0, where cookies is
nil and therefore I get the error:
NoMethodError: undefined method `[]’ for nil:NilClass

when cookies['locale'] is called. What’s the proper way to do this in
Rails 4.0?

P.S. Rack also was bumped from 1.4.6 to 1.5.5.

Check out Rails Internationalization (i18n) API:
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/i18n.html. Section 2.3: It reads:

“You may be tempted to store the chosen locale in a session or a
cookie.
However, do not do this. The locale should be transparent and a part of
the
URL…”

The cookies middleware in rails doesn’t look like it has changed.
However env[“actiondispatch.cookies”] is only set lazily - perhaps
previously there was some other middleware that was causing it to be set
for you? If so then you need to set env[“actiondispatch.cookies”] if it
is nil

If you create an actiondispatch::request rather than rack::request then
you’ll get a cookies method on request that does that for you.
