Recommended Authorization

Ok, Rails is getting more and more interesting everyday I try to work
with it. I had no idea how easy it is to code what you need. I could
find a good existing PHP Calendar class so it took me about 2 months in
"free time" chunks to write a PHP Calendar class to accomplish what I
needed. Just found some Rails plugin that allowed me to do what I wanted
in under 10 minutes.

Ok well, just wanted to say that :smiley:

I'm starting to understand Devise a bit more. Now I'm looking into
authorization plugins. There is a lot of options available and I'm
reading about a few of the ones I have found.

***What is your experience with authorization plugins? Which one do you
recommend?***

I found a list of some of them here
http://www.ruby-toolbox.com/categories/rails_authorization.html

I'm going to watch a few Railscasts:
OmniAuth
CanCan
Declarative Authorization
Authlogic

This is just a personal opinion, but iā€™d start with cancan. It was easiest for me to pick up and run with alongside devise. Declarative Authorization looks really nice, but I think it is too much for me to tackle right now, while still learning a lot of other RoR things.

Decided to go for Devise and CanCan
