was thinking about http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/acl_system
because it looks simple.

Hi Pat,

I’ve used acl_system2 , and it is simple and works well. I’ve had no
problems with it and recommend it.

Sincerely,
Joseph

I think Simple Access Control is even a bit better, from the README:

SimpleAccessControl is a streamlined, intuitive authorisation system.
It derives heavily from
acl_system2 and has made clear some problems which plagued me when
first using it. Some
fixes to acl_system2’s design:

   * a normal Rails syntax:
         access_rule 'admin', :only => :index
         access_rule '(moderator || admin)', :only => :new
   * error handling for helper methods (permit? bombed when

current_user == nil)
* one-line parser, easy to replace or alter
* proper before_filter usage, meaning access rules are parsed
only when needed
* no overrideable default (which I found counter-intuitive in
the end)

Also, it has two methods, access_control and permit?, for those
moving from acl_system2.

thanx for your answers.
acl_system2 svn says no updates has been made since July 2006 and
Simple Access Control since August 2006. Are these projects dead by
now?

Or it could simply be a matter of: if it ain’t broke, why fix it? The
plugins do everything they say and don’t need anything extra if you
ask me.
