Ruby-on-rails – Rails authentication plugin recommendation


I would like to add authentication to my Rails app. I came across few plugins that do this: acts_as_authenticated, restful_authentication, Authlogic…etc

I haven't seen an article that describes differences, advantages and disadvantages of using each.

Can you help with that? which one do you use and why?

I recently switched from restful_authentication to AuthLogic. The main reason was because I found restful_authentication a bit too bloated for what I was trying to achieve. Check out Ryan Bates' brilliant screencast:
