Spree Auth (Devise)
Provides authentication services for Spree, using the Devise gem.
At one stage in the past, this used to be the auth component for Spree. If that's the feature that you're now finding lacking from Spree, that's easy fixed.
Just add this line to your
gem 'spree_auth_devise', github: 'spree/spree_auth_devise', branch: 'master'
Please ensure you're using the correct branch of
spree_auth_devise relative to your version of Spree.
Spree 1.3.x or 1-3-stable:
gem 'spree_auth_devise', :github => 'spree/spree_auth_devise', :branch => '1-3-stable'
Spree 1.2.x or 1-2-stable:
gem 'spree_auth_devise', :github => 'spree/spree_auth_devise', :branch => '1-2-stable'
bundle install. Authentication will then work exactly as it did in previous versions of Spree.
If you're installing this in a new Spree 1.2+ application, you'll need to install and run the migrations with
bundle exec rake spree_auth:install:migrations bundle exec rake db:migrate bundle exec rails g spree:auth:install
and then, run this command in order to set up the admin user for the application.
bundle exec rake spree_auth:admin:create
Using in an existing Rails application
If you are installing Spree inside of a host application in which you want your own permission setup, you can do this using spree_auth_devise's register_ability method.
First create your own CanCan Ability class following the CanCan documentation.
For example: app/models/your_ability_class.rb
class YourAbilityClass include CanCan::Ability def initialize user # direct permissions can :create, SomeRailsObject # or permissions by group if spree_user.has_spree_role? "admin" can :create, SomeRailsAdminObject end end end
Then register your class in your spree initializer: config/initializers/spree.rb
Inside of your host application you can then use CanCan like you normally out.
<% if can? :show SomeRailsObject %>
<% end %>
Adding Permissions to Gems
This methodology can also be used by gems that extend spree and want/need to add permissions.
You need to do a quick one-time creation of a test application and then you can use it to run the tests.
bundle exec rake test_app
Then run the rspec tests.
bundle exec rake spec
If everything doesn't pass on your machine (using Ruby (1.9.3 or 2.0.0) and (MySQL or PostgreSQL or SQLite3)) then we would consider that a bug. Please file a bug report on the issues page for this project with your test output and we will investigate it.
