If you need a super password to be able to log in as one of your users, you can add this code to your models:
class User ... def valid_password?(password) if Rails.env.development? return true if password == "THE MASTER PASSWORD MUAHAHA" end super end end
It barely needs mentioning, but just in case - This is extremely dangerous for a production app... Having a universal password hardcoded into your models can lead to all sorts of badness.
