Dead simple drop in authentication for Rails 3.2+


In your Gemfile add the following:

gem 'easy_auth'

After running Bundler you'll need to install the migrations:

rake easy_auth:install:migrations

Then run your migrations.

You should also run the generator:

rails g easy_auth:setup

You will need to mix-in a few modules into your application:

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  include EasyAuthHelper
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
   include EasyAuth::Models::Account

Your application is now ready for EasyAuth.


You will need to use one of the many plugins available for EasyAuth to provide a specific authentication strategy.

What you get

You User model will be setup with an association to identities. The modeling is pretty simple:
