AuthenticatesRpi ================ Provides a consistent structure for web app authentication of RPI people. Authentication is accomplished through CAS using the rubyCAS-client, and model-level write authorization is provided by the authenticates_access plugin. Full installation procedure and usage documentation is available on this project's github wiki: http://wiki.github.com/mikldt/authenticates_rpi Example ======= Configuration is done by one line in a controller (in most cases it makes sense to do this in the ApplicationController for your app): authenticate_rpi Person, :username_field => 'username', :admin_field => 'is_admin' Where the Person is the model representing the site's users, and the username returned by CAS matches :username_field for the user that is logging in. :admin_field is an optional argument, and if provided, it's value will determine the method or field on the user model that identifies site administrators. This is a convenience feature. This makes the following methods available to controllers and views: * logged_in? * admin_logged_in? * current_user Login is available via the session controller provided by this plugin. Login link: link_to "login", new_session_path Logout link: link_to 'logout', session_path, :method => :delete See the wiki for details.
