User Authentication plugin

Hi,
I have to start a new application. Can anyone tell me whether should I
use "Restful Authentication" or "Authlogic"?

Thanks,
Mike

Authlogic

Definitely Authlogic (I've also been hearing good things about Devise,
but never tried it). restful_authentication relies on unmaintainable
generated code, whereas Authlogic has a much cleaner approach.

Best,

Actually, I think you should try Devise http://github.com/plataformatec/devise

Definately Authlogic.

It takes a bit longer to set up than Restful_authentication but it is
TOTALLY worth it.

The main reason is because with Authlogic, YOU write some basic code.
But with Restful_authentication, it generates all this code that is
hard to customize and maintain.
