I've never done authentication in rails, so please don't be rigorous.
The first thought was to use restful_authentication plugin. Since I
found no api online, and all instructions said, I have to use
generator (which is not what I wanted - I already had a model and I
needed to integrate authentication in it), I decided to create an
empty project and to check out what code the generator puts in the
model and other files.
What I found, I didn't like. User model contained a bunch of lines
with validators and other stuff. What I was looking for is one line,
And that's it. Why mix plugin code with the model code? So, my
1) Is there any manual or readme on how to integrate this plugin,
avoiding any generators, keeping as much code as possible out of /app
2) If no, is it worth writing authentication thing from scratch?
Any useful suggestions are welcome.
