          OmniAuth

          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.
