Rails Generate devise:install

Rails Generate Devise:Install (rails g devise:install) is the generator for installing the Devise Authentication Libary into a Ruby on Rails app.

To setup Devise in a new Ruby on Rails app, you run the following commands —

# add Devise gem
 bundle add devise
# install Devise
 rails g devise:install

From here, you'll probably want to run the Devise Model Generator, which configures Devise for new or existing models.
