Description

A simple, but feature-complete Ruby binding for OpenLDAP's libldap.

This binding is intended as an alternative for ruby-ldap for libraries or applications which require a more complete implementation of the LDAP protocol (according to RFC4511) than it provides.

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
  • etc.
  • 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.

Installation

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

Contributing

You can check out the current development source with Mercurial via its Bitbucket project. Or if you prefer Git, via its Github mirror.

After checking out the source, run:

$ rake newb

This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the API documentation.
