CentralLogin

A simple OAuth provider. See below for more information, or check out the source of CentralLogin on GitLab. To integrate it with your ruby-apps, use the omniauth-central_login gem.

Omniauth::Strategies::CentralLogin

An article, posted 5 days ago filed in devise, gem, authentication, openid, oauth, CentralLogin & login.

I just pushed omniauth-central_login to rubygems.org, to make it easy to integrate CentralLogin with other ruby apps. It is a companion gem to CentralLogin, a batteries included open source OAuth2 Provider based on Rails, Doorkeeper & Devise, with simple user managment tools.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

ruby gem 'omniauth-central_login'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install omniauth-central_login

Usage

Configuring Omniauth:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :central_login, ENV['CENTRAL_LOGIN_CLIENT_ID'], ENV['CENTRAL_LOGIN_CLIENT_SECRET'], {
    scope: "openid email profile",
    client_options: {
      site: ENV['CENTRAL_LOGIN_URL']
    }
  }
end

Configuration for Devise (using omniauthable):

You don't have to tie your users to a closed authentication system such as Auth0, Azure Directory, Cognito (the horror, really, stay away from it) or something else. In the past I've been a happy user of Keycloak, which is definitely way more advanced than this project, but it in the end it is a Java application and hence harder for me to maintain and not focussed on what I think are the core requirements :)

So, are you in the market for: - an …
