Simple Authentication in Rail 4 Using Bcrypt

#Simple Authentication with Bcrypt

This tutorial is for adding authentication to a vanilla Ruby on Rails app using Bcrypt and has_secure_password.

The steps below are based on Ryan Bates's approach from Railscast #250 Authentication from Scratch (revised).

You can see the final source code here: repo. I began with a stock rails app using rails new gif_vault

How to download all your Instagram pictures in highest resolution without using any API
Following the news about Facebook buying Instagram I decided to delete my Instagram account before Facebook claims ownership of my pictures.
Since the Instagram-recommended (in their FAQ): http://instaport.me/export doesn't work for me (probably they can't cope with the high demand),
here is a quick and dirty way to download all my Instagram pictures in their highest resolution in a few easy steps.
You will need: Firefox, Firebug, some text editor, wget
1. Go to http://statigr.am/yourlogin using Firefox with Firebug extension active
2. Scroll down as many times as it is needed to have all yor pictures thumbnails displayed (I had some 3 hundred pictures so it was not that much scrolling, YMMV)
3. In the Firebug JS console run this JS code: $(".lienPhotoGrid a img").each(function(index) { console.log($(this).attr('src')) })
4. JS console will contain urls to all the thumbnails images, like this: http://distilleryimage1.s3.amazonaws.com/4ed46cf2801511e1b9f1123138140926_5.jpg

Launch Sublime Text 2 from the Mac OS X Terminal

Sublime Text 2 ships with a CLI called subl (why not "sublime", go figure). This utility is hidden in the following folder (assuming you installed Sublime in /Applications like normal folk. If this following line opens Sublime Text for you, then bingo, you're ready.

open /Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl

You can find more (official) details about subl here: http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/2/osx_command_line.html
