  # In a view or controller:

  # In a before filter or helper
  # or other middleware:
  @current_user = User.find_by_login(webauth.login)

  # or whatever...

Usage in rails:

  # config/application.rb:
    require 'rack-webauth'

WebAuthOptional

If you want to make your site publicly available, but still enable WebAuth and have that information
in your Rails application, you need a patch to WebAuth. It is available from here. Also see the corresponding thread for more information.
