A Brief Introduction to the Lesli Gem

This is the continuation of my previous post regarding the Lesli SaaS Framework. This time, I’d like to explore further into the Lesli gem.

The Lesli SaaS framework is essentially a collection of gems, where each gem acts as a Rails engine providing a self-contained application with specific features like calendars, tasks, notes, and more.

The Lesli gem is the core of the framework, this gem is on charge of manage the security for all the Lesli engines, including: users, roles and privileges management. Along with the security the Lesli gem manage the database migrations, and share a controller and model base that all the engines inherit from to have a standar way to work with requests, data access and responses.

The Lesli gem serves as the core of this framework. It is responsible for managing the security aspects across all Lesli engines. This includes user management, roles, and privileges. Additionally, the Lesli gem handles database migrations and offers shared resources like controller and model base. This shared base ensures a standardized approach for handling requests, accessing data, and generating responses across all engines.

Moreover, this core gem is also in charge of engines management, allowing plug-n-play installation of Lesli RoR engines. This is a really cool and important feature! :)

You can visit the official website to learn more about Lesli:, and I’m dedicated to enhancing the documentation at Your feedback and suggestions are always appreciated! 😊
