New gem "acts_as_encryptable"

I’ve implemented a 30 LOC helper method gem for just using the encryption Rails already has implemented. It’s bloat free and easy to use. This way you’re up to date on security as long as Rails is. And there’s no high maintenance or feature bloat like other “encryption helper gems” have ;-). It’s fully tested too!

See the repo: acts_as_encryptable


Over a year ago I had re-invented the wheel on encryption in Rails and wrote a blog about it and how I discovered that Rails already had encryption code within it. That Blog Post

This new gem is not reinventing the wheel but rather attaching the wheel.
