Current_user

What do I need to do to be able to use an acts_as_authenticated
current_user in a model?

Error:You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
The error occured while evaluating nil.login

You need to populate a class variable in your User model from your
controller so that other models can access it. See userstamp (http://
delynnberry.com/pages/userstamp/) as an example.

Short answer, you can’t (at least not easily). current_user is a
controller method and therefore the model doesn’t have access to it
(Rails is all about Model-View-Controller separation, remember). There’s
been a fair amount of discussion on these lists about accessing the user
from the model, including a few MVC-breaking workarounds. Quick google
should dig them out.

You really shouldn’t. And, unless you make some horrible hacks, you
can’t.

The easiest thing to do is just pass the user object as a parameter to
whatever model method you’re using.
