Resyful authenticatio current_user in model

Hi,
I am using Restful authentication for user authentication.
I want the current logged in user object in my model property.rb
Problem is current_user is not working on model.

How can I fix this I need that?

Please help me out.

Thanks,
Mike

You have two options:

  1. Pass the current user from your controller into your model method:
    some_model.some_method(current_user)
  2. Use threads to set a class variable on the User model. You can
    either use the userstamp gem/plugin to provide you the functionality
    (User.stamper) or extract the necessary code and roll your own:
    http://github.com/grosser/userstamp

The first method respects the separation of MVC better, the second can
be more convenient in some cases. It’s up to you to decide the best
route.

This isn’t directly related to your issue…but if you don’t mind a bit
of advice, I highly recommend removing restful_authentication from your
project as soon as possible. It relies on unmaintainable generated
code, and so is needlessly hard to work with. I recommend Authlogic
instead.

Thanks,

The third option is to make virtual attribute on the model and always
set it when needed in the controller

class Model
attr_accessor :current_user

def some_method
if current_user.admin?
#foo
else
#bar
end
end
end

class FoosController

def index
m = Model.find(…)
m.current_user = current_user
m.some_method()
end

end

Marnen: What’s so ‘unmaintainable’ in your opinion?
