Devise Guests

Build Status

A drop-in guest user implementation for devise

(I'm using "user" to mean my devise model, but you should be able to use any model you want, just like devise)


# install devise first
# gem install devise
# rails g devise:install
# rails g devise User

gem install devise-guests
rails g devise_guests User


# Where you might use current_user; now you can use


# which returns

current_user # (for logged in users)

=> User<id: 1, email: ...>
# or 

guest_user # ( for anonymous users)

=> User<id: nil, email: [email protected], guest: true>
