Hi everyone, Are there any Rails systems that are either: * Easily extensible to use a different auth store? * Use LDAP out of the box? Thanks, Sean

Working so far, though I'm fairly new to the LDAP world. One irritation is that the ruby-ldap library doesn't build on Windows. If anyone wants to fix that, I'd be happy to talk about paying for that to happen.

Hey that's great. You might want to repost that as a new thread and with an appropriately tagged subject (like "[job offer] will pay to port ldap code to windows platform"). I think the most crucial challenge ruby/rails faces is that it is behind the curve as far as a solid base of utility libraries and such are concerned. And the patronage model will get that done faster than just wishing! b

Isn't there ActiveLDAP? basically lets u plugin a LDAP database as you would with ActiveRecord. Tweak the login generator forms around (or the schema) and you should be good to go. Ofcourse, nothing works as smoothly as it does in theory....

ActiveLDAP depends on Ruby/LDAP which doesn't compile on Win32 without running inside Cygwin.
