Authority helps you authorize actions in your Rails app. It's ORM-neutral and has very little fancy syntax; just group your models under one or more Authorizer classes and write plain Ruby methods on them.

Ever needed to assign roles to a model, say a User, and build conditional behaviour on top of that? Enter RoleModel -- roles have never been easier! Just declare your roles and you are done. Assigned roles will be stored as a bitmask.
