NAME ^

Plack::Middleware::NoDeflate - Prevent content from being deflated

VERSION ^

version 0.01

SYNOPSIS ^

    enable 'NoDeflate';

DESCRIPTION ^

Plack::Middleware::NoDeflate is middleware which prevents content from being deflated before being served. It sets HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING to a blank value, which means that HTML and text will not be deflated by servers and applications which respect this environment variable.

MOTIVATION ^

Plack::Middleware::Debug does not work with deflated content. In many cases, you'll be able to fix this by disabling any deflation in the development process, but that's not always the case. Further, if you're trying to mangle the response body of a proxied URL with your own middleware, you'll find yourself with the same problem.

One way to deal with this would be to re-inflate the deflated content yourself. Another, simpler way, is simply to prevent the content from being deflated in the first place, which is what this module does.
