Devise with DynamoID

Disclaimer: this is a work in progress

dynamoid-devise will let you use devise with dynamoid.

dynamoid-devise is intended for use with Rails 4.1.x and Devise 3.4.x and above. It may work with earlier versions of devise.

This README only covers dynamoid-devise specifics. Make sure to read the devise README


Add devise, dynamoid and dynamoid-devise gems to your Gemfile (your Rails app Gemfile).

gem 'devise'
gem 'dynamoid'
gem 'dynamoid-devise'

Use bundler to install all required gems in your Rails app

bundle install

Run the devise install generator, followed by the dynamoid-devise model generator:

rails generate devise:install
rails generate dynamoid:devise MODEL

The devise install generator will install an initializer (config/inititializer/devise.rb) which describes ALL Devise's configuration options and you MUST take a look at it.

Maker sure this line exists: require 'devise/orm/dynamoid'

NOTE: The model generator should do this automatically.

To add Devise to any of your models using the generator:

rails generate dynamoid:devise MODEL

Example: create a User model for use with Devise

rails generate dynamoid:devise User

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
