I’ve spent a lot of time learning Rails, and building a User model,
controller, etc. I’m just starting to add a “forgot password”
function and I am reading that restful_authentication looks like it
has that built in. My question is, is it possible to migrate from
what I have to restful_authentication without creating a massive
headache for myself, or is this relatively straightforward? All I
want to do is add “forgot password” functionality, but it looks like
this generator is exactly what I want.
The more general observation is, order seems to count a lot in ROR.
If I were starting an app from scratch, I think this time around, I’d
start with restful_authentication along with a few others that are
really really time saving. But it seems like if you go down a
development path, unaware that someone has solved a lot of problems
for you, and then discover that plugin or generator, it is sometimes
more work than it’s worth to undo all of your work. Does anyone agree
