Login Help

Hi all,
I’ve got to do a simple user login/logout system as part of a university
project and haven’t the faintest clue where to start!
Any help would be great
Cheers

Phil,

Could you be more specific? What are you logging in to? Is there a
current system in place that accomplishes the same thing? How does it
work?

My school has a wireless network, and to use it, you must go to
https://1.1.1.1/login.html and enter a username and password to use the
internet. I have written a script to automate this process, and will
share it if it might be useful. But could you tell us a little more
about your situation?

Hey Phil,
It would be better if you can actually let me know where you are stuck
up or
what you want to do after having a login/logout system

Hi,

Are you using Rails or another framework? Or pure Ruby?

Hey,
Basically me and my team have to make a social networking site, similar
to facebook but a lot less complex, i’ve been given the task of making
the user login part and have to do it from scratch. Unfortunately there
isn’t a system in place that accomplishes this

I’m using rails

Hi,

I previously used LoginGenerator successfully for user authentication.
You can find an installation guide here:
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/HowToQuicklyDoAuthenticationWithLoginGenerator

But yes, Rails questions should go to the Rails group.

If you’re using Rails 2.0 I’d suggest using the RESTful Authentication
plugin. It’s drop-dead easy to use.

It’s possible that you might want to hit
http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-talk. Not that people
won’t be able to help you here if you have a Ruby question. Your
question sounds a little more like an implementation one. (?)
