Uploadify on Rails, without rack middleware (using devise)

You can avoid the middleware hack when using flash in rails with logged in users.

As you should know, the browser doesn’t share the session with flash. Before using devise, I was using a rack middleware to hack into user session.

But there is a much cleaner way if you use devise, you can use the built in feature :authentication_token.

More details on how are here.
