Gem-Based Admins for Clearance

Do you like movies about gladiators or Clearance-based authentication? If you do, you and Captain Oveur will become fast friends. Captain Oveur adds user-management tools and admin authentication to make flights of web development smoother.

Tested with Rails 2.3.5 and Clearance 0.8.8

Install it as a gem (after installing the clearance gem, then “script/generate”-ing clearance, cucumber and clearance_features):

gem install captain_oveur

script/generate captain_oveur

To use the cucumber features for Captain_Oveur:

script/generate captain_oveur_features


A lot of this gem looks exactly like clearance. Firstly, I am an unabashed fan of thoughtbot and clearance. Given the problem domain, I also think it was the best way to handle a lot of issues, but I am open to criticism and/or suggestions.


It looks like nearly 50 people downloaded 0.8.9, and for that I am truly sorry.

0.8.9 was kind of a mess – a few of the filenames were maimed by an unruly git client, making it unusable.

0.8.10 fixes all of that and makes a few other improvements.
