What is Cierge? Easy magic-link authentication. Cierge is an open source authentication server (OIDC) that handles user signup, login, profiles, managerment, and more. Instead of storing passwords, Cirege uses magic links/codes and external logins to authenticate your users.
What is Devise? Flexible authentication solution for Rails with Warden. Devise is a flexible authentication solution for Rails based on Warden.
Cierge and Devise can be primarily classified as "User Management and Authentication" tools.

We use OmniAuth with Devise to authenticate users via Twitter, GitHub, Bitbucket and Gitlab. Adding a new OmniAuth authentication provider is basically as easy as adding a new Ruby gem!
The only drawback I could see is that your OmniAuth+Devise
OmniauthCallbacksController redirection logic can easily get hairy over time. So you have to be vigilant to keep it in check.
Devise handles user registration with low effort. Also is configurable in so many levels, from custom views to create-your-own controllers.
