Installation

When you sign up you will be provided with a unique username and password that you can use when configuring your proxy service in your application: 

 

http://username:password@proxy.quotaguard.com:9292

 


We recommend you store the connection string in an environment variable QUOTAGUARD_URL to maintain compatibility with platforms like Heroku and CloudControl.


You can test your proxy setup using curl:

 

$ curl -x username:password@proxy.quotaguard.com:9292 http://www.google.com/

 

Integration

Ruby Geocoder is the leading geocoding solution for Ruby and Rails and works seamlessly with QuotaGuard. Simply add your authenticated connection string in to the geocoder initializer.


  

# config/initializers/geocoder.rb
Geocoder.configure(
...
:http_proxy => ENV["QUOTAGUARD_URL"],
:timeout => 5 
)
