A simple, but feature-complete Ruby binding for OpenLDAP's libldap.
Additions or changes:
- Referrals for add, modify, delete, modrdn, compare
- Controls for add, modify, delete, modrdn, compare
- Asynchronous and synchronous APIs
- Detailed exception class hierarchy for results instead of just one class for all non-success results.
- Complete RFC4511 support:
- extended operations and results
- unsolicited notifications
- continuation references
- intermediate responses
- alias deferencing
- Cleanly abandon terminated operations where supported
- Memory-handling cleanup to avoid leaks, corruption, and other problems experienced in the wild.
- Drop deprecated non-_ext variants of operations which have a modern equivalent.
- M17n for Ruby 1.9.x.
- Improved test coverage
NOTE: This library is still under development, and should not be considered to be feature-complete or production-ready.
This project's versions follow the Semantic Versioning Specification.
gem install openldap
You may have to specify the path to
libldap like so:
gem install openldap -- --with-ldap-dir=/usr/local
and/or override your Ruby implementation's architecture flags if your Ruby and OpenLDAP installations don't match, particularly under MacOS X:
ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" gem install openldap
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the API documentation.
