NAME

Plack::Middleware::Antibot - Prevent bots from submitting forms

SYNOPSIS

    use Plack::Builder;

    my $app = { ... };

    builder {
        enable 'Antibot', filters => [qw/FakeField TooFast/];
        $app;
    };

DESCRIPTION

Plack::Middleware::Antibot is a Plack middleware that prevents bots from submitting forms. Every filter implements its own checks, so see their documentation.

Plack::Middleware::Antibot uses scoring system (0 to 1) to determine if the client is a bot. Thus it can be configured to match any needs.

$env

Some filters set additional $env keys all prefixed with antibot.. For example TextCaptcha filter sets antibot.text_captcha to be shown to the user.

Options

max_score

When accumulated score reaches this amount, no more filters are run and bot is detected. 0.8 by default.

filters

    enable 'Antibot', filters => ['FakeField'];

To specify filter arguments instead of a filter name pass an array references:

    enable 'Antibot', filters => [['FakeField', field_name => 'my_fake_field']];

fall_through

    enable 'Antibot', filters => ['FakeField'], fall_through => 1;

Sometimes it is needed to process detected bot yourself. This way in case of detection $env's key antibot.detected will be set.

Available filters

Plack::Middleware::Antibot::FakeField (requires Plack::Session)
