Subject [jira] [Commented] (RIPPLE-29) Cookies for localhost ?
Date Mon, 17 Jun 2013 22:43:20 GMT


Brent Lintner commented on RIPPLE-29:

Hey Chris,

I apologize for the delayed reply. :-)

I've had some experience trying to get Cookies to work in Ripple (when working on the 'emulate'
command and XHR proxy), but I have yet to (take the time to) test and figure it out entirely-
I think I've run into the similar issues you have.

I'm unfamiliar with /etc/hosts and cookies (don't use them much or at all).. could you elaborate
more? (sorry).

Regardless of that, for what it is worth.. I did find you could set and forward Cookies on
localhost when using 'ripple emulate --remote http://localhost:XXXX' where XXXX is a local
port that original app is running on (the browser seemed to forward a Cookie header then).
I'm not sure whether that is a feature or a bug, to be honest, but it seemed to work.

If you meant setting Cookies via XMLHttpRequest, Unless it works when doing what I mentioned
above, I don't believe that is possible. Although, off the top of my head, one solution could
be to turn off the XHR proxy entirely (via the settings panel) and add support for Cross Origin
Resource Sharing (CORS) to your locally hosted application (even just for dev), and make calls
directly to it.

Sorry to not be as much of a help. I have a bunch of things I want to get done on this project,
but if I get a chance to really dig into things, I'll be sure to post (and fix things if it
is the case). :-)

PS: I doubt it, but it could also be that the code is missing something to handle that. FYI:

> I can't *seem* to get Ripple to accept cookies. Is there any way to get Ripple to accept
cookies when the hostname is in the /etc/hosts file? I'm doing dev locally, and I can't get
it to happen. I've tried every combination I can think of, no dice. I know it won't work with
localhost due to browser restrictions.
> My virtual box is running a php application that is passing json data back and forth.
I can see the login happen on the php side and the session cookie get started. But it never
makes it back to the OSX side running Ripple. I'm assuming I'm in some sort of CSRF hell.
I've tried setting domains, nothing. Does Ripple support setting cookies when emulating?
> Thanks for any pointers or help.
