You need ActiveLog when you want to automagically create changelog of all activerecord changes in your rails app, asynchronously. It will keep track of all changes on attributes and as a bonus it can also record which user (session's current_user) made the change.
add "records_active_log" to all models which needs to be logged
You can access logs either by user or all...
class User < ActiveRecord::Base records_active_log end
>>u = User.first >>u.active_logs => [...] or >> ActiveLog.all
If you want to log along with information of currently logged in user then you should consider adding a before filter to application controller which sets ActiveLog.current = current_user
