Devise for Rails

Happened to try out Devise in my new rails project. Must say it is a great plugin that has impressed me for the following reasons :

  • A piece of cake to implement. The documentation and help-me references are truly helpful and answer a number of questions that you might have about the plugin.
  • Apart from being a flexible authentication solution, It has got a bunch of useful modules for things like setting up a user registration/confirmation feature for your web app,  forgot/reset password feature etc. The best part is you choose what you want to use.
  • The plugin also provides a number of hooks to let you override certain aspects of the implementation. So, it is extensible as well.
  • The necessary custom routes for the different devise controllers are generated seamlessly by using a devise_for :resource in your routes.  There are other interesting things that you can do here as well.

I worked on a user welcome email feature for the project which I think could be another module that could add value to Devise. Hope to contribute sometime soon.
