With OAuth.io integrating OAuth takes minutes instead of hours or days.

What is OmniAuth? 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.

      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.
