Chrome extension to decode Ruby on Rails session cookies.
This extension lets you easily decode the content of Rails sessions stored in cookies. Rails' session cookie-store saves sessions in serialised base64-encoded cookies. It also supports encrypted session cookies (new default in Rails 4). This enables you to quickly read the content of a session for debugging purposes. The extension uses the Cookitor web app (https://cookitor.herokuapp.com/) to decode the content of the session. This extension only works with ActionController::Session::CookieStore (the current default cookie store). https://github.com/garnu
