Does anyone know if there is information available about updating the
restful_authentication plugin on an existing application. There were
some recent fixes to make it work properly with the Rails 2.0.1
I have an existing application using the plugin and after updating the
application to run under Rails 2.0.x I was getting an error related to
redirect_to_url. I changed the line in lib/authentication_system.rb to
redirect_to, which seems to have fixed the error.
However, I also noticed in the notes of the latest version of
restful_authentication that there is a new option (–stateful). If I
want to update my application to take advantage of this feature, or
any future features, how do I update the authentication system without
breaking other things in my application? Is there a generator that I
can run to just update the existing system and not have it think I’m
doing a initial generation?
To be clear: I’ve already got the migration, and made the necessary
changes to application_controller.rb, session_controller.rb, etc. I
don’t want to redo that work again after running the generator.
