I’m busy tapping away at my current Ruby on Rails project and have been overwhelmed by the number of options out there.  Luckily I’m a member of URUG and we have some great discussions (and even better programmers).

I came across a discussion on role requirements for users.  Tim Harper developed what seems to be a very clean implementation of user roles in RoleRequirement using Restful-authentication.  I’ve installed both plugins and I like what I see.

I’m not that far into it, because I work as an attorney during the day.  But in just the little I’ve been able to chip away at my project, I think you might like it too.
