Spree Auth (Devise)

Build Status Code Climate

Provides authentication services for Spree, using the Devise gem.


At one stage in the past, this used to be the auth component for Spree. If that's the feature that you're now finding lacking from Spree, that's easy fixed.

Just add this line to your Gemfile:

gem "spree_auth_devise", :github => "spree/spree_auth_devise"

Please ensure you're using the correct branch of spree_auth_devise relative to your version of Spree.

Spree 1.3.x or 1-3-stable:

gem 'spree_auth_devise', :github => "spree/spree_auth_devise", :branch => "1-3-stable"

Spree 1.2.x or 1-2-stable:

gem 'spree_auth_devise', :github => "spree/spree_auth_devise", :branch => "1-2-stable"

Then run bundle install. Authentication will then work exactly as it did in previous versions of Spree.

If you're installing this in a new Spree 1.2+ application, you'll need to install and run the migrations with

bundle exec rake spree_auth:install:migrations
bundle exec rake db:migrate

and then, run bundle exec rake spree_auth:admin:create in order to set up the admin user for the application.

If you're updating a Spree 1.1 application, run these to migrate the database:

rake railties:install:migrations
rake db:migrate


You need to do a quick one-time creation of a test application and then you can use it to run the tests.

bundle exec rake test_app

Then run the rspec tests.

bundle exec rake spec

If everything doesn't pass on your machine (using Ruby (1.9.3 or 2.0.0) and (MySQL or PostgreSQL or SQLite3)) then we would consider that a bug. Please file a bug report on the issues page for this project with your test output and we will investigate it.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
