Topic: Update to latest devise
I am currently building a Rails 3 app and am using devise for authentication. Rails 3.0.0 and devise 1.1.5
I have been having some issues with the app getting caught in a redirect loop when logging in. After banging my head for awhile I finally checked out the devise page on github and found that several fixes were recently added for redirect issues. I am *hoping* these will resolve my issues as well. The fixes are new enough that they are not part of a tag yet.
I have tried several things in my bundle to get the latest (edge?) version of devise to install.
gem 'devise', '1.1.5'
Result: Installed devise 1.1.5
Bailed on the bundle, downloaded the latest tarball (master?) and attempted to install.
gem build devise.gemspec sudo gem install devise-1.2.rc.gem
Result: All the files were in the tarball but all I got was an empty devise-1.2.rc folder
Back to the bundle
gem 'devise', :git => 'git://github.com/plataformatec/devise.git', :ref => '0615c0a'
note: ref is the 'tree' number on github of the committed fixes.
Result: Output was Using devise (1.2.rc) however again all I got was an empty devise-1.2.rc folder.
This is all still quite new to me and I may be missing something trivial here. Any help would be much appreciated.
