Description

Authority helps you authorize actions in your Ruby app. It's ORM-neutral and has very little fancy syntax; just group your models under one or more Authorizer classes and write plain Ruby methods on them.

Authority will work fine with a standalone app or a single sign-on system. You can check roles in a database or permissions in a YAML file. It doesn't care! What it does do is give you an easy way to organize your logic and handle unauthorized actions.

If you're using it with Rails controllers, it requires that you already have some kind of user object in your application, accessible via a method like current_user (configurable).
