Rails + Let's Encrypt


I’ve created a simple gem to obtain certificates from Let’s Encrypt.

It would be nice if some of you could test the gem and maybe help me to make it more useful for Rails users.

On Github: https://github.com/tobiasfeistmantl/LeSSL

On Rubygems: https://rubygems.org/gems/le_ssl

Take a look into the “Planned Features” section in the Github repo README. I think there are some cool things we could do here.

I’d also need some help to write tests for this gem. I don’t have a lot of experience with the Boulder server and I also don’t want to use the live servers of Let’s Encrypt for the automated tests.

Maybe someone has an idea how to simulate Boulder locally without installing and configuring a lot of stuff?
