Rails way of creating a new full url with new parameters after removing old parameters from a url

If we have some keys and values and we just need to create a url with this data just pass the url and hash as a parameter to the following method.

def generate_url_with_params(url, params = {})
    uri = URI(url)
    uri.query = params.to_query
    uri.to_s
end

If you want to get rid of the parameters from a url use the following method.

  def generate_url_without_params(url, params = {})
    uri = URI(url)
    full_params = Rack::Utils.parse_query uri.query
    params.each do |key, val|
      full_params.delete key
    end
    uri.query = full_params.to_param
    uri.to_s
  end
