I've got a Rails app in which I do not need to use sessions, with one exception: I want to use RoR flash.
Now, I much prefer to use true stateless client-server, thus avoiding the hassle of dealing with server-side session information. And I've successfully set up my application accordingly. I'm guessing there's some way to completely disable RoR sessions (though if you want to point me in the right direction, it would save me some research time ).
But I do want to use flash.
It strikes me that it would be easy to implement flash using a cookie, especially since I'm only using it for limited things that I would happily put in that cookie. It also strikes me that someone else may already have written a plug-in to do this. But I can't seem to find such a thing.
Anyone know of such a beast? Or should I just go ahead and try to write one on my own?
Thanks, Joe Dzikiewicz
