Largely based on restful_authentication by Rick Olson. Changes include:
Bcrypt is used for password storage. Specified with RSpec. Authentication mechanisms are seperated into modules contained within the plugin. Generators are only used for migrations. Does not include email verification. This plugin does not generate controller code for you. Partly because I'm lazy and partly since example code (taken from restful_authentication) can be found in the resources directory of the plugins spec folder.
For a rationale on why SHA1 with individual salts is sub-par to bcrypt read Thomas Ptacek's article.
ExampleUsing acts_as_authentable is as easy as:
gem install bcrypt-rubyInstalling acts_as_authentable:
./script/plugin install http://acts-as-authentable.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/acts_as_authentableAnnotate the model object you want to be authentable:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
endCreating a migration for adding fields to the authentable model:
./script/generate authentable user
creates a migration:
db/migrate/XXX_add_authentable_fields_for_users.rbIf you have rspec and rspec_on_rails installed verify the plugin with:
