Hi Frank-

You’re opening a can of worms around here mentioning login
generator/plugin/component/engines.

I started with the Salted Hash Login Generator and doctored it up quite
a bit. I ended up moving some components to my “account_controller”,
some to my “signup_controller”, some to my “admin/…_controllers” and
so on.

It natively supports roles, but not in a fashion I wanted to use. I
added a usergroup class/model and linked it through that. It does have
email support.

Cheers,
Jake J.

Jake is right, there is quite a bit of activity regarding login and
role support around here. Taking that into account, I would like to
give a vote of support to login_engine and user_engine. Login_engine
is basically Salted Hash Login Generator without the localization
(making initial setup a bit easier) and it is a Rails Engine, which
has great buzzword value. Regardless of any hype around the Engines
system, I have found that they are both very useful and include some
nice features out of the box… erm, svn checkout.

I did not want to start a war.

How do I install login_engine and user_engine?

Thanks

Frank

Right. The login system is NOT the right place for localization to take
place.
MLR (multilingual Rails) is currently under revision, and should be
coming out as a plugin soon.

Having localization happen in the login generator made it more
difficult to localize the rest of the app.

Just an update: That new version of MLR I was working on is now called
Globalize, and is available as a plugin at:
http://globalize.diluvia.net/wiki.

Happy Holidays,

Is this the reason localisation was dropped? To make setup a bit
easier? Doesn’t this make adding localisation later a lot harder? If
you do add localisation what happens when you want to upgrade the

Sorry. I actually knew that, my brain just stopped working before I
finished the e-mail.

P.S. - RubyForge project for the cross-platform Unicode gem coming
soon; I haven’t forgotten.
