I need to develop an application which needs to authenticate user by verifying login name/password for both web access and API. I need the same controller to cater to both web and API. I can put the before_filter for the controller to make sure that user is logged-in and user_id is in session. But how do I design the controller that if the request comes as a rest web service request then before filter should not check session for logged user but should authenticate with login/password passed as parameters with request and then should go ahead whichever way the request came to controller.

I would really appreciate any code samples/links to sites which explain how to do that.

I am working on building an api client for the Rakuten Market-place. I have got some test requests for add delete update etc working and thought I should aim to structure it as a Gem and publish it so that others can use it/enhance it.

I haven't built a Gem before (worked mostly within the rails environment to date).

Have been reading and looking at other api client gems and am making progress on building something (still got a way to go to handle errors etc.)

To make the gem general purpose though, I am trying to figure out the best way to provide the mapping between models in a rails app and the api client objects (such as product, category, order etc).

I am aiming to make each client api object a class be (or should i call them models?)
Then I suspect I will use new to build an api instance from a rails instance, and find to return an api instance to a rails instance.

I can build in mapping for my own models to the api objects with no problem, but I can't see how I could generalize this so that other apps with similar models could use the gem.

I suspect there are approaches for doing this, but so far I haven't managed to come up with how to do it. If anyone has any wisdom on the matter I would be grateful.

I was reading the docs for primary key on postgresql and I saw that there was a way to add a custom stored procedure that returns a UUID. There is a test case as well that uses a custom uuid generator**********cf1762922d330a8/activerecord/test/cases/adapters/postgresql/uuid_test.rb#L193

But I was not sure how to to implement this myself. Like in the test case where do I place my_uuid_generator() and how to implement it in my rails application?
