AnyLogin Gem

Build Status Gem Version

Description

Demo available on: https://any-login.herokuapp.com (source code for demo https://github.com/igorkasyanchuk/any_login_test)

Video Demo: https://youtu.be/978DlHvufSY

AnyLogin was created to speed up the development process by allowing developers to quickly log in as any user.

Give it a try; if you like it please share AnyLogin with friends. If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact me.

Requirements

Ruby: 1.9.3, 2.X, Rails: >= 4.0. Pre-configured to work with Devise, Authlogic, Clearance or Sorcery gems.

For Rails < 4.2.7 please use gem 'any_login', '1.3'.

Installation

  1. Add AnyLogin to your Gemfile:

     gem 'any_login'
    
  2. Execute in console:

     bundle install
    
  3. In application layout (for example app/views/layouts/application.html.erb) add the following to the bottom of the page:

     = any_login_here if defined?(AnyLogin)
    
  4. Open your app and on the bottom left corner you will see semi-transparent user icon. Click on it and now you can select any user to log in as without a password.

Integrations

Devise

By default no additional steps are required to make it work with Devise gem. If you have a User model everything should work fine. If you have different user model you need to set it in options (see Customization section).

Authlogic

By default no additional steps are required to make it work with Authlogic gem. If you have a User model and a current_user method in application controller everything should work fine. If you have different user model you need to set it in options (see Customization section).

Clearance

By default no additional steps are required to make it work with Clearance gem. If you have a User model everything should work fine. If you have different user model you need to set it in options (see Customization section).

Sorcery

By default no additional steps are required to make it work with Sorcery gem. If you have a User model everything should work fine. If you have different user model you need to set it in options (see Customization section).

Customization

If you want to customize gem execute in console:

rails g any_login initializer

It will create the initializer file config/initializers/any_login.rb.

Options

  • enabled - enable or disable gem (by default this gem is enabled only in development mode).
  • klass_name - class name for "User" object. Defaults to User.
  • collection_method - method which returns collection of users. Sample: .all, .active, .admins, .groupped_users. Value is a simple. Defaults to :all.
  • name_method - default value is proc { |e| [e.email, e.id] }. You can change the label of users displayed in dropdown. For example you can add roles, permissions and any other important information.
  • limit - limit number of records in dropdown. Default 10. You can put :none if you don't want to limit the number of users for select.
  • redirect_path_after_login - redirect user to path. Default is :root_path.
  • login_on - you can enable login with select field, ID input or both. Default: :both.
  • position - position of AnyLogin box on page. Possible values: top_left, top_right, bottom_left, bottom_right. Default: bottom_left.
  • login_button_label - login button label.
  • select_prompt - select prompt message.
  • auto_show - automatically show AnyLogin box.
  • http_basic_authentication_enabled - Enable HTTP_BASIC authentication.
  • http_basic_authentication_user_name - HTTP_BASIC authentication user name.
  • http_basic_authentication_password - HTTP_BASIC authentication password.
  • verify_access_proc - controller based access (condition on request.remote_ip, current_user, etc.)

Advanced Options

If you want to display users grouped by role you can do it with:

# Initializer: config/initializers/any_login.rb
AnyLogin.setup do |config|
  config.collection_method = :grouped_collection_by_role
end

# User class: app/models/user.rb
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  def self.grouped_collection_by_role
    {
      'admin'     => User.admins.limits(10),
      'moderator' => User.moderators.limit(10),
      'user'      => User.users.limit(10)
    }
  end
end

Or another sample:

# Initializer: config/initializers/any_login.rb
AnyLogin.setup do |config|
  config.collection_method = :grouped_users
  # to format user name in dropdown list
  config.name_method = :any_login_name
end

# User class: app/models/user.rb
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  def any_login_name
    [full_name + ' - ' + email + " Domains: #{domains.collect(&:short_code).join(',').presence || 'none'}; Role: #{role}; ID: #{id}", id]
  end

  def self.grouped_users
    Organization.ordered.includes(:employees).inject({}) do |res, org|
      res[org.name] = org.employees.ordered.includes([:domains, :organization])
      res
    end
  end
end

Production

If you want to completely disable gem in production add following code in your config/environments/production.rb file.

AnyLogin.setup do |config|
  config.enabled = false
end

You can also try to debug your application in production and secure AnyLogin with HTTP_BASIC authentication. See Options sections for more details.

Future Plans

  1. Add tests
  2. Add support for more authentication gems like Devise, Authlogic, Clearance (restful_authentication, monban, letmein)
