By default, Spina CMS includes basic user management using it's own
Spina::User model. If you're adding Spina to an existing app, you might already have some form of authentication that you want to use for Spina.
You can do that by creating a module with two methods:
logged_in?. Here's an example of a project using it's own
module MyApp module CustomAuth extend ActiveSupport::Concern included do helper_method :logged_in? helper_method :current_user end def logged_in? current_user end def current_user @current_user ||= MyApp::User.find_by(id: session[:user_id]) if session[:user_id] end private def authenticate redirect_to "/login" unless logged_in? end end end
After creating the module, you need to configure it in
Spina.configure do |config| # ... config.authentication = "MyApp::CustomAuth" end
