Instance Method Details

#activated?Boolean

Returns true if a controller has been set and can be used properly. This MUST be set before anything can be done. Similar to how ActiveRecord won't allow you to do anything without establishing a DB connection. In your framework environment this is done for you, but if you are using Authlogic outside of your framework, you need to assign a controller object to Authlogic via Authlogic::Session::Base.controller = obj. See the controller= method for more information.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

  Thread.current[:authlogic_controller]
end

#controller=(value) ⇒ Object

This accepts a controller object wrapped with the Authlogic controller adapter. The controller adapters close the gap between the different controllers in each framework. That being said, Authlogic is expecting your object's class to extend Authlogic::ControllerAdapters::AbstractAdapter. See Authlogic::ControllerAdapters for more info.

Lastly, this is thread safe.
