ReCaptcha

Build Status Code Climate

Gem to easily use Google reCaptcha

The gem implements v2 of the reCaptcha API.

Run tests with rake

Run console with preloaded library with rake console

Getting started

You may need to configure the gem with non default values:

ReCaptcha.configure do |config|
  config.private_key = "secret key"
  config.public_key  = "site key"
end

The options are:

  • private_key (default: ENV['RECAPTCHA_PRIVATE_KEY'])
  • public_key (default: ENV['RECAPTCHA_PUBLIC_KEY'])
  • api_endpoint (default: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/)
  • skipped_env (default: ['test', 'cucumber'])
  • language_table: the table to map locale with language code
  • deny_on_error: if the Google reCaptcha API can't be accessed, deny the verification (default: false)

The default language table is the following:

{
  'en-US' => 'en',
  'fr-FR' => 'fr',
  'es-ES' => 'es',
  'pt-PT' => 'pt-PT',
  'it-IT' => 'it',
  'en-GB' => 'en-GB',
  'de-DE' => 'de',
  'pt-BR' => 'pt-BR',
  'en-EU' => 'en-GB',
  'es-LA' => 'es-419',
  'zh-CN' => 'zh-CN',
}

Display

The view helpers are automatically included in a Rails app. If you're not using Rails, include the helpers with include ReCaptcha::Helpers.

The available helper methods are the following:

  • recaptcha_script(language: nil) includes the script tag in the view. Language is one of the locale defined in the language table.

  • recaptcha_tags(options = {}) adds the reCaptcha box in the view.

The options are the following (the default value is given):

  • theme: 'light'
  • type: 'image'
  • size: 'normal'
  • tab_index: 0
  • callback: nil
  • expired_callback: nil

Check the reCaptcha doc for the available values (https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/display).

Here is an example that shows how to use the helpers in a view (haml)

- content_for :scripts do
  = recaptcha_script(language: I18n.locale)

...

= form_for @object, url: my_path, method: :post, html: { class: 'form' } do |form|
  = form.text_area :message, placeholder: 'Message'
  = recaptcha_tags
  = form.submit 'Submit', class: 'submit btn blue-bg anim'

Verification

Assuming that your application uses Rails, verify the reCaptcha response in your controller using the method recaptcha_valid?(model: nil, message: nil).

model and message are optional and enables you to set an error message on the :base attribute of the provided model.

Example

def create
  @user = User.new(user_params)

  return error(t('invalid_recaptcha')) unless recaptcha_valid?

  if @user.save
    redirect_to root_path
  else
    error(t('user_error'))
  end
end

private

def error(message)
  flash[:error] = message
  render :new
end

If you're not using Rails, this method can be called like this: ReCaptcha.client.recaptcha_valid?(response, remote_ip: nil). No model nor message can be provided.

Integration with devise

  • Get your keys from Google reCaptcha. The site key is the public key and the secret is the secret one.
  • Install this gem
# Gemfile
gem 're_captcha'
  • Add the tags in your views. recaptcha_script may be added in your layout view.
<%= recaptcha_script(...) %>

...

<%= recaptcha_tags(...) %>
  • Create your own controllers that inherit from the Devise controllers.
    • For unlocks
    class UnlocksController < Devise::UnlocksController
      def create
        if recaptcha_valid?
          super
        else
          self.resource = resource_class.find_or_initialize_with_errors(resource_class.unlock_keys, resource_params, :not_found)
          flash[:error] = t("invalid_recaptcha")
          render :new
        end
      end
    end
    • For passwords
    class PasswordsController < Devise::PasswordsController
      def create
        if recaptcha_valid?
          super
        else
          self.resource = resource_class.find_or_initialize_with_errors(resource_class.unlock_keys, resource_params, :not_found)
          flash[:error] = t("invalid_recaptcha")
          render :new
        end
      end
    end
    • etc

Other examples are given on the Devise Wiki for Recaptcha Gem. The use case is similar and examples can be easily adapted.
