DailyCred vs OmniAuth: What are the differences?
Developers describe DailyCred as "Everything you need to manage users for your website or app". Everything you need is included: email verification, password resets, session cookies, and all the UI you need for sign in, and sign up. Skip all this work and get running instantly. If you already have a sign-in system, DailyCred sits side-by-side with the full power of user APIs and dashboards. On the other hand, OmniAuth is detailed as "OmniAuth is a flexible authentication system utilizing Rack middleware". OmniAuth is a Ruby authentication framework aimed to abstract away the difficulties of working with various types of authentication providers. It is meant to be hooked up to just about any system, from social networks to enterprise systems to simple username and password authentication.
DailyCred and OmniAuth can be categorized as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
Some of the features offered by DailyCred are:
- One API for 12 OAuth Providers- Regardless of how your users sign up, DailyCred gives you access to identity information with a single consistent API. Sometimes users forget exactly how they signed up, so DailyCred prevents duplicate accounts for the same user.
- Security- Use our sign in UI, and get secure authentication over https for free. Don't waste another moment buying or implementing ssl certs ($70 on GoDaddy). Credentials are stored as salted hashes using bcrypt, the industry standard designed by Niels Provos and David Mazieres. DailyCred is securely hosted by Amazon AWS.
- CRM & Backoffice without the Hassle- We create a record of every user and lead that signs up on your website. We even show you how they found you, what campaign they came from, and what they did on your site before signing up. Resetting passwords, monitoring events, banning users, deleting or creating accounts and viewing your website as your users can be handled by any team member.
On the other hand, OmniAuth provides the following key features:
- Multi-provider authentication
- Over 200 supported authentication providers (see list at https://github.com/intridea/omniauth/wiki/List-of-Strategies)
- Open source
OmniAuth is an open source tool with 6.88K GitHub stars and 877 GitHub forks. Here's a link to OmniAuth's open source repository on GitHub.

What tools integrate with DailyCred?
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
