AR::Base#has_secure_password and PasswordValidator

Hi all,

I have extracted some code from the collection of AR/AM validators few people (incl. me)

have built recently. It brings an optional key “:strength” that could be used to specify what

sort of Regex-based validations the password should pass.

This looks like (default strength is “weak”):

has_secure_password :strength => :strong

You could also use it without ActiveRecord:

class Foo

include ActiveModel::Validations

validates :password_to_validate, :password => { :strength => :medium }

Here is the pull request if you are interested in reviewing it:

Thanks anyway for that feature,
