OmniAuth vs Userbin: What are the differences?
Developers describe OmniAuth 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. On the other hand, Userbin is detailed as "Instant User Accounts. Turns your link tags into sleek login flows". Add one line of code to your website to get a login interface that is consistent across all browsers. Start accepting signups and handle logins with no additional HTML or CSS.
OmniAuth and Userbin can be categorized as "User Management and Authentication" tools.
Some of the features offered by OmniAuth are:
- Multi-provider authentication
- Over 200 supported authentication providers (see list at https://github.com/intridea/omniauth/wiki/List-of-Strategies)
- Open source
On the other hand, Userbin provides the following key features:
- Ready-to-go UI. No need to design login forms from scratch. The in-page, customizable popup integrates seamlessly with your website.
- Social Login. Enable login with Facebook and Github without additional coding. Easily build apps on 3rd party data.
- Actionable Metrics. With no extra setup, Userbin gives you access to the most important user metrics from day one.
