Rails plugin for using the RubyCAS-Client as a controller filter.

This uses a Railtie, so will only work with Rails 3.0 and up.


Add the following to your Gemfile:

gem 'rubycas-client-rails'

Then run bundler in your Rails app's root directory:

bundle install

Once the necessary gems have been installed, in your application.rb add:

config.rubycas.cas_base_url = ''

Finally, to enable the CAS filter for a controller:

class MyController < ApplicationController

  before_filter RubyCAS::Filter

If you want authentication to be optional, use the GatewayFilter instead:

  before_filter RubyCAS::GatewayFilter

Many other configuration options are available. For example you can instruct the client to log its actions to the default Rails logger using:

config.rubycas.logger = Rails.logger

See the (outdated) documentation at for a full list of config options.
