NoPassword is a simple authentication and session engine that removes the need for passwords. Instead, it uses tokens sent to an email address, similar to most forgot password functionality. These tokens created long-lived sessions that can be tracked and revoked easily.
NoPassword is structured as a Rails Engine, which you can mount in your routes file:
mount Nopassword::Engine, :at => "/nopassword"
You'll need to install the migrations:
rake nopassword:install:migrations rake db:migrate
You can set up a signin form with the
send_login_email route and a
request parameter named
If you don't already have email configured, create a config/email.yml with your mail server settings.
defaults: &defaults email_server_address: [YOUR MAIL SERVER] email_port: [YOUR MAIL PORT] email_domain: [YOUR MAIL DOMAIN] email_username: [YOUR MAIL USERNAME] development: <<: *defaults test: <<: *defaults production: <<: *defaults
NoPassword uses the Passw3rd library to manage email credentials.
mkdir config/passwords cd config/passwords passw3rd -g passw3rd -e email_password [Enter your email password]
Finally, you need to download the latest GeoIP database:
cd db wget http://geolite.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCity.dat.gz && gzip -d GeoLiteCity.dat.gz
NoPassword uses the MIT-LICENSE.
