Q: How do I set cookies from Jets?

You can set cookies with the cookies helper in the controller. The cookies helper acts like a hash.

class PostsController < ApplicationController
  def index
    cookies[:favorite] = "chocolate"
    render json: {message: "yummy cookies set"}
  end

Q: How do I set headers from Jets?

You can set headers with the set_header method in the controller. Here is an example

  def index
    set_header("MyHeader", "foobar")
    response.set_header("Custom", "MyHeader") # also works to set headers
    response.headers["Custom2"] = "MyHeader" # also works to set headers
  end
