Rack::Attack: Protect your app with this one weird gem!

Mature apps face problems with abusive requests like misbehaving users, malicious hackers, and naive scrapers. Too often they drain developer productivity and happiness.

Rack::Attack is middleware to easily throttle abusive requests.

At Kickstarter, we built it to keep our site fast and reliable with little effort. Learn how Rack::Attack works through examples from kickstarter.com. Spend less time dealing with bad apples, and more time on the fun stuff.
