I’ve seen the RESTful Authentication plugin that Rick Olsen has, and
was wondering if anyone has used it, or can answer my questions:
- What does RESTful Authentication really mean? How does CRUD fit
Create - Create new user
Read - What does it mean to ‘read’ a user?
Update - Change the user name, etc?
Destroy - Remove user account
Seems like you would have to have a session id anyways, otherwise how
do you authorize?
How do sessions fit into CRUD? Is the session the object of the
CRUD, as opposed to a user?
What’s the benefit of this over acts_as_authenticated?
