Today I needed to implement role-based authorization. I reviewed a few gems, and the cancan gem looked like the easiest to implement (and it had the most downloads and most forks on github).
It was a true pleasure to integrate this into my app! Works like a charm. Simple, and effective.
Now I need to remove the old half-finished, hard-coded authorization logic, and that may actually be more work!
Thanks Ryan, love your screencasts. This gem was so easy to use, I didn't even bother watching the screencast :-)
