I'm using Rails 2.3.10 together with bundler 1.0.21 and cancan 1.6.7.
I have this as an output of script/generate:
Plugins (vendor/plugins): authenticated, paperclip, polymorphic_paperclip
Rubygems: acts_as_taggable_on_migration, cucumber, culerity, email_spec, feature, integration_spec, paperclip, pickle, rspec, rspec_controller, rspec_model, rspec_scaffold
Builtin: controller, helper, integration_test, mailer, metal, migration, model, observer, performance_test, plugin, resource, scaffold, session_migration
I added gem 'cancan' as last line in Gemfile. I don't know what to do to enable cancan generators.
CanCan doesn't come with a Rails 2.3 generator. All it does is create an ability.rb file in your models folder.
You can get exactly the same thing by creating the file and inserting:
Or copy the exact generated code from here
I will try to clarify this in the wiki and add a pull request for the readme (#616)
