I am porting a web site similar to one I've built at work in .NET over to
rails, just for the sake of helping to learn Ruby and Rails in my free
time. The site has a sign in screen, and you can't go anywhere else in the
site until you've authenticated with a username or password.
I have a good understanding of how to authorize with something like
OmniAuth, but I'm not sure what the most elegant / "rails way" is to
redirect someone, should they attempt to access a RESTful URL. I am
familiar with redirect_to, and could use that by wrapping it in some sort
of global check_if_signed_in function that I could call at the top of
various controller methods.
Anyway, how is that typically done in Rails? Seems like something that
would come up a lot for many sites (online banking, facebook, etc all
require sign in prior to anything else).
