Has there been any rigorous discussion of why Rails doesn’t have baked-in authentication? I’ve seen a handful of posts alleging that “authentication varies too much” but I’m having trouble envisioning which fundamentally distinct use-cases would prevent a single library from solving 98% of user needs.
Can anyone point to such a discussion? Failing that, I’d like to hear about various use cases which would be incompatible or messy if they were implemented in a single library.
Being an ‘opinionated’ framework, it seems like authentication is something that would benefit from an opinion.
