Restful Authentication

Rick Olsen's restful authentication is my current preferred method for authenticating users.


Add Rick Olsen's repository

ruby script/plugin source

Install the resful_authentication plugin

ruby script/plugin install restful_authentication

Generate the

ruby script/generate authenticated user sessions --include-activation

Create the tables in the database

rake db:migrate

Add the following routes to config/routes.rb

map.activate '/activate/:activation_code', :controller => 'users', :action => 'activate', :activation_code => nil
map.signup '/signup', :controller => 'users', :action => 'new'
map.login '/login', :controller => 'sessions', :action => 'new'
map.logout '/logout', :controller => 'sessions', :action => 'destroy'

Now for any controllers to which you want to restrict access, add the following line:

before_filter :login_required
