  • Passkey Authentication with Rodauth
    4 projects | | 24 Jul 2023
    Rodauth provides first class support for passkeys, implemented on top of the excellent webauthn-ruby gem. It enables using passkeys as a multifactor authentication method, or for passwordless login and registration. In addition to routes, views and database storage, it also provides the complete JavaScript part that interacts with Web Authentication API for zero configuration.

    I can recommend rodauth: It ships with a ton of things. Check out the features section.
  • A First Look at Hanami 2 for Ruby
    6 projects | | 15 Dec 2022
    In general, even though the Hanami ecosystem lacks any "plug-and-play" solutions such as Devise, you can use many existing libraries not tightly coupled to Ruby on Rails. For authentication, you can use Warden, OmniAuth or Rodauth. For uploads there is Shrine. The pagination is built into ROM. Integration with exception catchers such as Rollbar is easy.
  • Social Login in Rails with Rodauth
    4 projects | | 6 Dec 2022
    While Devise provides a convenience layer around OmniAuth, it does nothing to actually sign the user into your app. When I started writing the OmniAuth integration for Rodauth, I wanted to go one step further and actually handle things like persistence of external identities, account creation and login, while still allowing the developer to customize the behaviour. That's how rodauth-omniauth was created. ✨
  • Time to think about swapping off Devise?

  • I’ve started discussion + work on updating Devise to support passkeys; we need contributors!
    4 projects | /r/ruby | 21 Oct 2022
    I'm curious, is providing a regular WebAuthn flow enough to support passkeys (like the one Rodauth ships with), or do you need something more?
    4 projects | /r/ruby | 21 Oct 2022
    You probably meant the webauthn_login, which already supports passwordless.
  • What It Took to Build a Rails Integration for Rodauth
    11 projects | | 12 Oct 2022
    When Rodauth came out, I was excited to finally have a full-featured authentication framework that wasn't tied to Rails, given that existing solutions required either Rails (Devise, Sorcery), or at least Active Record (Authlogic). Even though I mainly develop in Rails, I want other Ruby web frameworks to be viable alternatives, so I'm naturally drawn to generic solutions that everyone can use.
