site starter kit?

Hello

I'm planning to build a site that lets users share stories, sort of
like a text version of flickr.com It's my first RoR app.

A large portion of my app is going to be the same as a lot of
community-type apps, specifically, user registration and mangement --
let the user register, send them activation email, show a user profile
page, let them edit preferences, and later on, admin control panel.
It's rather daunting to do all this from scratch. Is there something
like a starter kit with an account management module I can just drop
into my app and customize for my use?

thanks

Hi,

have a look at acts_authorized plugin. It's easy to integreate and simple to extend.
