Is Devise Always a Good Choice for My Rails App?

So you’ve managed to wire your rails app together, but now your wanting to add some authentication so your users can login and perform some sort of restricted action.

You probably used devise before but your wondering if it’s time to roll your own solution. Maybe you’re looking for that extra bit of control.

Stick with Devise

My recommendation would be to Stick with Devise.

Devise is well tested and it’s been downloaded over 11 Million times.

The last thing you need to worry about is making subtle mistakes that could put your users at risk. Sometimes it’s not worth reinventing the wheel.
