[Standup][SF] 09/24/12: Everyone agrees 2-factor auth is good? Yes.

Helps

  • Apple push notification gem

What is the best gem to use for Apple push notifications from a Rails 3.2 server when Urban Airship is not an option?

(nobody knows)

  • Is Google 2-Step Authentication a good thing?

After all the cracking stories in the news of late, I decided to turn on Google’s 2-step authentication. It’s a little annoying to wait for a 6-digit code to arrive on my cell phone when I want to log in, but it beats losing my account to the forces of evil.

Any warnings or experiences, good or bad?

Response: Most everyone agrees: yes, this is good, use it.

    We use PYAPNS (https://github.com/samuraisam/pyapns). It’s built with Python/Twistd, but there’s ruby gem. There’s also Grocer, a gem released recently, but we havent tried it yet – https://github.com/highgroove/grocer.

  2. I’ve had great success with rapns (https://github.com/ileitch/rapns) recently, although it polls your database. I’ve been meaning to pull request a patch to make it use PostgreSQL listen/notify when possible.

    The nice thing is at you can use the activerecord observers you’re used to for feedback handling and such.
