Bundler:

gem "sixarm_ruby_secure_token", "~>1.4.0"

require "sixarm_ruby_secure_token"

Install with security (optional)

To enable high security for all our gems:

wget http://sixarm.com/sixarm.pem
gem cert --add sixarm.pem
gem sources --add http://sixarm.com

To install with high security:

gem install sixarm_ruby_secure_token --test --trust-policy HighSecurity

Details

This generates a 32-character token of all lowercase letters, using Ruby's securerandom methods.

SecureToken is a string, so you can do any string methods on it. You can change how tokens are randomly created, however you want.
