account registration, authentication plugins

Hi,

I would like to know what the most popular plugins people are using
for creating membership accounts and authenticating their login?

Thanks,

The big one seems to be AuthLogic.

Authlogic.

Best,

i looove devise, it has everything.

You can also evaluate Ryan Bates’ “cancan” - http://github.com/ryanb/cancan
A nice RAILSCast ascii cast here with link to video cast: http://asciicasts.com/episodes/192-authorization-with-cancan

Please quote when replying.

Cancan is for authorization, not authentication.

Best,

Thanks Marmen for the clarification for authentication vs authorization.

Not sure about ‘quote when replying’ part, I am kind of new to forum. I reply using gmail, things looks fine when I do the reply.
Am I missing something?

Thanks

Yes. Gmail normally quotes the text you're replying to. You should
leave that in there, suitably trimmed, as I'm doing in this response;
reply to each point immediately after. That way it's easy to figure out
what you meant. (This is also the proper way to reply to non-list
e-mail messages, BTW.)

Thanks

Best,

Thanks everyone for the input, AuthLogic and devise both look
promising, if anyone has {other} links to blogs & tutorials for these
two plugin please provide.

The one tutorial for AuthLogic I've found is:

I am leaning toward using devise and have found a sample tutorial here:
