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.


First, install the rubycas-client gem:

gem install rubycas-client

Next, clone the rubycas-client-rails code from Github (this will eventually be released as a gem too).

Now add both to your Gemfile:

gem 'rubycas-client'
gem 'rubycas-client-rails', :path => '/path/where/you/cloned/rubycas-client-rails'

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

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See the (outdated) documentation at for a full list of config options.
