When overriding the registration controller from devise, is it possible to access the newly created

I’m trying to create a folder right after a user registers, so I
override
the create action on the registration controller (devise) but I don’t
know
how to access the newly created user in order to create the folder with
it’s name to upload files later.

So far I’ve got this:

class RegistrationsController < Devise::RegistrationsController

def new
super
end

def create
super
create_folder
end

def update
super
end

def create_folder
path = Pathname.new(’:rails_root/tmp/’)
directory_name = “:current_user”
Dir.mkdir(path, directory_name) unless File.exists?(directory_name)
endend

routes.rb

devise_for :users, :controllers => {:registrations => “registrations”}

I followed
thishttp://stackoverflow.com/questions/3546289/override-devise-registrations-controller
to
override the registration controller.

  1. Should I leave it there or move it to the create action? Instead
    of
    using a method
  2. is that the right way to access the current user?
  3. Maybe instead of registration it’s better to do it on sign in?

I don’t know how you have your application encapsulated or even what
you consider behavior but if it were me I would skip trying to be
clever and skip trying to override methods I have no business being in
and simply hook into creation on the model:
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Callbacks.html
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveModel/Callbacks.html just
because it’s tied to the database does not mean it’s strictly an
interface between your app and the database ;).

There is a resource object about that should have the newly created
user.

This methodology worked well for me.
