Ruby wrapper for xmlsec?


#1

Hi All,

If there’s support for XML signing in Ruby out there, I can’t find it (&
apparently neither can anyone on RailsForum
(http://railsforum.com/viewtopic.php?id=26227).

So, I was thinking of writing a Ruby wrapper for xmlsec
(http://www.aleksey.com/xmlsec/). Nothing particularly fancy, to start
with just exposing the functionality that I need (signing & verifying an
entire XML document).

I do have a few questions though:

  • Before I start tilting at this particular windmill, does anyone know
    of an existing xmlsec wrapper? I can’t find one myself but that’s no
    guarantee it doesn’t exist.

  • Can anyone point me to a good, current, tutorial for creating Ruby
    Gems? A Google search turned up many and I don’t know which are
    considered good by the Ruby community (I’m new to developing Gems but
    have been using Rails for a few years now).

TIA for any help.

Yours,
Duncan B.

Not too late … turns out that both that and XmlSig
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmlsig) do what I want.
