Devise is an open source project developed by Brazilian development company Plataforma. It makes Ruby on Rails development much more easier on authentication.
Devise is authentication solution Rails gem(a plugin for Ruby on Rails). It handles users logging in and out: Registering, forgotten passwords, resetting passwords, and so on. All these functions are done to industry standard design patterns. Which means your authentication system is ready to go, you just need to think about where to put the register form and resetting passwords link, save you a lot of time, isn’t it?
As a post from Plataforma says that it’s different to the incumbent libraries, Clearance and Authlogic, in that it provides a full stack solution like Clearance (unlike Authlogic) but allows you to use a custom model (not just “User”) and gives you customized role support. It also has full i18n (internatiionalization) support out of the box.
Here is a demo app showing off how Devise can work within a small Rails app.
