Pull request Compare This branch is 57 commits behind jondot:master.



A Padrino ( module that provides authentication for your Padrino application through Warden (

Most of the code was adapted from sinatra_warden (


Currently padrino-warden uses password as default authentication strategy. If you wish to change that consult Warden (

class SampleApp < Padrino::Application configure do ## # Application-specific configuration options # end

register Padrino::Warden

class User attr_reader :name def initialize(name) @name=name end

def self.authenticate(a, b) return'john') end end

Warden::Strategies.add(:password) do def valid? params[“email”] || params[“password”] end

def authenticate! u = User.authenticate(params[“email”], params[“password”]) u.nil? ? fail!(“Could not log in”) : success!(u) end end Warden::Manager.serialize_into_session do |user| end

Warden::Manager.serialize_from_session do |id| User.get(id) end end

Run this to see your new routes:

$ padrino rake routes

You can now login at localhost/sessions/login

After login you can fiddle with current_user for anything you need.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
