Devise vs OAuth.io: What are the differences?

Developers describe Devise as "Flexible authentication solution for Rails with Warden". Devise is a flexible authentication solution for Rails based on Warden. On the other hand, OAuth.io is detailed as "OAuth That Just Works". OAuth is a protocol that aimed to provide a single secure recipe to manage authorizations. It is now used by almost every web application. However, 30+ different implementations coexist. OAuth.io fixes this massive problem by acting as a universal adapter, thanks to a robust API. With OAuth.io integrating OAuth takes minutes instead of hours or days.

Devise and OAuth.io can be categorized as "User Management and Authentication" tools.

Some of the features offered by Devise are:

  • Is Rack based
  • Is a complete MVC solution based on Rails engines
  • Allows you to have multiple models signed in at the same time

On the other hand, OAuth.io provides the following key features:

  • Quickly integrate API providers
  • More than 100 providers available

      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.
