#params(klass = nil, &blk) ⇒ Object

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Whitelist valid parameters to be passed to Hanami::Action#call.

This feature isn't mandatory, but higly recommended for security reasons.

Because params come into your application from untrusted sources, it's a good practice to filter only the wanted keys that serve for your specific use case.

Once whitelisted, the params are available as an Hash with symbols as keys.

It accepts an anonymous block where all the params can be listed. It internally creates an inner class which inherits from Hanami::Action::Params.

Alternatively, it accepts an concrete class that should inherit from Hanami::Action::Params.

Examples:

Anonymous Block

require 'hanami/controller'

class Signup
  include Hanami::Action

  params do
    required(:first_name)
    required(:last_name)
    required(:email)
  end

  def call(params)
    puts params.class            # => Signup::Params
    puts params.class.superclass # => Hanami::Action::Params

    puts params[:first_name]     # => "Luca"
    puts params[:admin]          # => nil
  end
end

Concrete class

require 'hanami/controller'

class SignupParams < Hanami::Action::Params
  required(:first_name)
  required(:last_name)
  required(:email)
end

class Signup
  include Hanami::Action
  params SignupParams

  def call(params)
    puts params.class            # => SignupParams
    puts params.class.superclass # => Hanami::Action::Params

    params[:first_name]          # => "Luca"
    params[:admin]               # => nil
  end
end

Parameters:

  • klass (Class, nil) (defaults to: nil)

    a Hanami::Action::Params subclass

  • blk (Proc)

    a block which defines the whitelisted params

Returns:

  • void
