Scaling your API with rate limiters

The following are examples of the four types rate limiters discussed in the accompanying blog post. In the examples below I've used pseudocode-like Ruby, so if you're unfamiliar with Ruby you should be able to easily translate this approach to other languages. Complete examples in Ruby are also provided later in this gist.

In most cases you'll want all these examples to be classes, but I've used simple functions here to keep the code samples brief.

Request rate limiter

This uses a basic token bucket algorithm and relies on the fact that Redis scripts execute atomically. No other operations can run between fetching the count and writing the new count.

resolving the proper location and line number through a console.log wrapper

console.log wrap resolving for your wrapped console logs

I've heard this before:

What I really get frustrated by is that I cannot wrap console.* and preserve line numbers

We enabled this in Chrome DevTools via blackboxing a bit ago.

If you blackbox the script file the contains the console log wrapper, the script location shown in the console will be corrected to the original source file and line number. Click, and the full source is looking longingly into your eyes.

ID - a unique ID/name generator for JavaScript
View ID.js
// Generate unique IDs for use as pseudo-private/protected names.
// Similar in concept to
// <>.
// The goals of this function are twofold:
// * Provide a way to generate a string guaranteed to be unique when compared
// to other strings generated by this function.
// * Make the string complex enough that it is highly unlikely to be
// accidentally duplicated by hand (this is key if you're using `ID`

AngularJS Authentication and CORS
View auth.markdown

Single Page Apps are ruling the world and AngularJS is leading the charge. But many of the lessons we learned in the Web 2.0 era no longer apply, and few are as drastically different as authentication.


CORS is an oft-misunderstood feature of new browsers that is configured by a remote server. CORS stands for Cross-Origin-Resource-Sharing, and was designed to make it possible to access services outside of the current origin (or domain) of the current page.

Like many browser features, CORS works because we all agree that it works. So all major browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and IE support and enforce it. By using these browsers, you benefit from the security of CORS.

That means certain browsers do not enforce it, so it is not relevant there. One large example is a native Web View for things like Cordova and Phonegap. However, these tools often have configuration options for whitelisting domains so you can add some security that way.

console.log(window); // log the "window" object to the console
You can’t perform that action at this time.
