Action Text Sanitizer update to more inclusive language
How I went about updating my Action Text allowed tags/attributes
Now that we are rightly as a community removing references in Rails to language such as blacklist and whitelist, I thought I would share how I updated my
action_text.rb file to use more inclusive terms that are now available in Rails.
Before I had to use:
Rails::Html::WhiteListSanitizer.allowed_tags << 'iframe’
And this is now able to be:
Rails::Html::Sanitizer.safe_list_sanitizer.allowed_tags << 'iframe’
You may find that if you update Rubocop you will be alerted to
Naming/InclusiveLanguage: Consider replacing problematic term 'WhiteList' with 'allowlist' or 'permit’. in this file.
