Spree Refinery CMS Authentication

Build Status Code Climate Test Coverage

This gem is a Refinery CMS and Spree E-commerce connector.

Key features

  • It provides tabs in Refinery CMS and Spree menus to easily switch between both backends
  • Shares admin sessions and user abilities between Refinery CMS and Spree.



Create a new Rails 4.2.x application:

gem install rails -v 4.2.3
gem install bundler

Add Spree and those gems to your Gemfile:

gem 'refinerycms', github: 'refinery/refinerycms', branch: 'master'
gem 'quiet_assets', :group => :development

# Add support for searching inside Refinery's admin interface.
gem 'refinerycms-acts-as-indexed', ['~> 2.0', '>= 2.0.0']

# Add support for Refinery's custom fork of the visual editor WYMeditor.
gem 'refinerycms-wymeditor', ['~> 1.0', '>= 1.0.6']

gem 'spree', github: 'spree/spree', branch: '3-0-stable'
gem 'spree_auth_devise', github: 'spree/spree_auth_devise', branch: '3-0-stable'
gem 'spree-refinerycms-authentication', github: 'bricesanchez/spree-refinery-authentication', branch: '3-0-stable'

Note: DON'T install the gem refinerycms-authentication-devise. The authentication will be provided by Spree and included in the gem spree_auth_devise.

Run bundler, then install Spree

rails g spree:install

Change the Spree.user_class in the initializer config/initializer/spree.rb

Spree.user_class = "Spree::User"

Run the migrations

rake db:migrate

Then, put those lines in config/routes.rb to use RefineryCMS and Spree together and remove routes conflicts

root :to => "refinery/pages#home"
mount Spree::Core::Engine, :at => '/shop'
mount Refinery::Core::Engine, at: '/'

Note: If you try to mount both engines at => '/', Refinery will try to display a page even if you request a Spree page. Every page load will be slow.

Create a Spree admin user

bundle exec rake spree_auth:admin:create

All done! Now start your application

rails server

You should now be able to access Refinery admin at http://localhost:3000/refinery and Spree admin at http://localhost:3000/shop/admin.
