[ANN] Lockdown 0.5.16

About:

http://stonean.com/wiki/lockdown
Lockdown is a authentication/authorization system for RubyOnRails (ver
2.x).

Lockdown operates on the principal of restrict all access unless access
has
been defined. Another difference with Lockdown is that instead of your
security rules being defined in your controllers (and therefore spread
across your application), all access is controlled via
lib/lockdown/init.rb. This where you will define the permissions and
user
groups that will define the access to your system. Yet another
difference
is the absence of Roles. Instead of roles, users can be associated to
one
or many user groups which allows for superb flexibility.

Lockdown also comes with a generator to give you a nice head start with
your
project. It provides models, views, controllers, helpers, routes and
migrations.

There’s more to know (if you care to), but that’s what the wiki is for.

What’s Changed:

  • Updated included classy inheritance library.
  • Change: option no_migration to skip-migrations to mimic other
    generators
  • Fixed: errant creation of sessions directory in app/controllers with
    generator

No changes to the security engine were made.

There is a wiki, forum and issue tracking for Lockdown at
