Ruby On Rails: suggested gems / development stack

I'm new to RoR development and I'm searching for suggestion for finding best community gems.

E.g. for authentication/authorization? Is devise a good component? https://github.com/plataformatec/devise

Is there any gem for produce a richer gui in views with easy?

In few words, an experienced RoR developer what gems he installs after creating a new app?

Regards,
Giacomo

Answer

This is always basic in nearly all my apps.

gem 'devise'
gem "friendly_id", "~> 4.0.1"
gem 'omniauth-facebook'
gem "devise_mailchimp"

gem 'twitter-bootstrap-rails'
gem 'dragonfly', '~>0.9.11'
gem 'will_paginate'
gem 'will_paginate-bootstrap'
gem "mysql2", "~> 0.3.11"
gem 'thin'

and more. You can also visit http://railscasts.com/ you will get more ideas there.
