We wanted to solve these problems:
A single User Manager application (which will authenticate ALL users with different roles)
Different internal applications which talk to User Manager for authentication
User should be able to login/sign-up via Social Networks like Twitter and Facebook.
Single Sign On between all applications.
This custom provider acts as an omniauth client (to connect to Twitter & Facebook) AND also acts as a omniauth provider (via auth_controller) to authenticate internal applications.
Clone this repository and do a bundle install. NOTE: We are using devise master HEAD because it has the latest omniauth integration code.
git clone git://github.com/joshsoftware/sso-devise-omniauth-provider.git bundle install rake db:create rake db:migrate
Create your Twitter App and Facebook App. Create the initializer file with the following omniauth configuration:( eg. I use config/initializers/omniauth.rb )
Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do provider :twitter, 'twitter-appid', 'twitter-app-secret' provider :facebook, 'facebook-appid', 'facebook-app-secret' end
That's it! Your on your way:
