  • Authenticating a Roda API with social login?

    I think most of the work is integrating with the database library, and you're already using Active Record which the majority of the examples use. I found this wiki page to be quite useful in understanding the various edge cases when handling external logins.

    For example, I wanted my users to be able to log in through Google, but I was having trouble getting Omniauth to work properly. Maybe it was interacting weirdly with some other part of my code and having a more simplified set up that looks the same would make it easier to spot the bad interaction, or maybe I just needed to start fresh because I missed something in the setup. Either way, perfect candidate for the sandbox! But even when I got it figured out there, I still couldn't get it to transfer over to my real project...
  • Add SAML SSO to a Rails 6 app

    We’ll use a Ruby gem omniauth-multi-provider to support SAML multi-tenancy. omniauth-saml will handle that actual SAML bits, and this library uses ruby-saml internally, much in the same manner we used it in the single-tenant approach. OmniAuth is a Ruby library that “standardizes multi-provider authentication for web applications.” If you’ve implemented OAuth in a Rails app you’re likely familiar with this library. It integrates well with Devise, and offers a framework for engineers to create Strategies for OmniAuth for authenticating against external services. If you’re not familiar with OmniAuth it’s worth familiarizing yourself - https://github.com/omniauth/omniauth.

  • SAML vs. OAuth
    1 project | dev.to | 19 Jan 2021
    OAuth remains a popular authentication mechanism today, for both consumer and business applications. It’s incredibly easy to implement - languages and frameworks often have standardized approaches or libraries that make this easier. In Ruby, there’s omniauth, “a library that standardizes multi-provider authentication for web applications”. Any developer can create an omniauth “strategy” for a specific web service. Passport is a similar approach for NodeJS apps.
  • Plan My MD Visit

    I challenged myself to set two authentication providers alongside the traditional username and password set up. Ruby gem omniauth provides a gateway to utilizing multi-provider authentication strategies. While GitHub relies on gem omniauth-github, Google depends on gem omniauth-google-oauth2. Gem dotenv-rails is required to securely save PROVIDER_CLIENT_ID and PROVIDER_SECRET. I defined the Rack Middleware in Rails initializer at config/initializers/omniauth.rb.

    Change the OAuth callback route to /users/auth/slack_app/callback instead of /users/auth/slack/callback. (If you’re curious, here’s the bit of code in OmniAuth that’s responsible for inferring the callback URL.)
