You can easily compress your responses from your Rails app with a one-liner. No additional gems required.
This comes at a very small cost to response time but can reduce your responses size by about 10x.
Heres how to set it up in Rails:
# config/application.rb # This must come before some other middlewares such as JSONP config.middleware.use Rack::Deflater
You can also add this to any Rack Application
use Rack::Deflater run MyApp::Instance
