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.
Great for building Node + Angular authentication workflows. Passport is great, but doesn't have the Angular client-side authentication support, so Satellizer is a better fit.
Devise handles user registration with low effort. Also is configurable in so many levels, from custom views to create-your-own controllers.
