Low level Rack authentication enforcement.
BonaFide was built to bring advanced middleware functionality to all Rails apps. By providing the key functions to setup user state, limit access, and redirect others, BonaFide is a simple solution to a complex problem.
Essentially, BonaFide injects it's middleware just before Rails and it's routing are called, allowing it to read the current request's cookies, and call your designated model with the requested user state cookie. By setting user state before routing is called, BonaFide allows for more inteligent routing, as well as reduce request initialization code.
Install BonaFide gem
gem install bona_fide
Configure BonaFide settings
Create initializer in
BonaFide.configure do |config| config.base_class = User config.setter = :authenticate config.cookie_name = "user_cookie" end
BonaFide provides a helper for routing via
BonaFide::Constraint which allows for calling methods on the configured base class. For example:
ExampleApp::Application.routes.draw do # routes where User.admin? is true constraints(BonaFide::Constraint.new(:admin?)) do root to: "index#admin" end # routes where User.user? is true constraints(BonaFide::Constraint.new(:user?)) do root to: "index#user" end # fallback route root to: "index#visitor" end
