Thanks for your response!
Yes ActionControl is much more lightweight (probably also because I started it as recently as yesterday ;)) than CanCanCan and the other Gems. The main reason I’ve created this Gem was because I don’t like the way CanCanCan stores the authorization code. You have to store everything in Policy classes and somehow have a “connection” between your model and the authorization. With ActionControl the check is always done in the controller in which the authorization is placed.
But of course there are a lot more things to do to make ActionControl great. The first what i can think of would be test helpers, view helpers and to fix the known issues.
I will do my best to improve ActionControl and implement all these cool things and as I already said I would appreciate any help.
