Everything was going great until I installed Devise!

  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • authentication-zero

    An authentication system generator for Rails applications.

    If you don’t need a good amount of features that Devise brings to the table, I‘d skip it entirely. Look up has_secure_password, that will be enough for a vast amount of applications with authentication. Maybe combine with cancancan for authorization. Once you feel you have a grip on those, re-evaluate devise or take a look at https://github.com/lazaronixon/authentication-zero which will transparently integrate into your app instead of providing a Rube Goldberg machine (that’s what devise will feel like for beginners for a long time).

  • Sorcery

    Magical Authentication (by Sorcery)

    I have been using devise for a while and it has consistently given me issues. I have wistfully been staring at sorcery for a while now but cant justify the switch since devise is already in the project.

  • PopRuby
