Full-time web developer. Part-time smart ass.

I'm Brent Collier.

After a year and a half as an engineer on Twitter's Trust & Safety team, I'm looking for my next gig. Contact me if you know of something interesting.


I decided to "role" my own... get it?

Posted on 07/26/2009

I had some spare time the other day, which doesn't happen often, so I thought I'd take advantage of it by building something useful rather than tenderizing my brain via social media like I usually do.

After hearing numerous complaints recently about shitty role/authorization implementations, I thought I'd take a stab at it, so I whipped up role_fu.  It's a rails plugin that simplifies the process of setting up role access rules for controller actions.

Check out the project page or the readme for more details.

If you've got any feedback, do me a favor and leave a comment on the project page, or just shoot me an email brentmc79(@)gmail(dot)com.
