OpenID providers/scripts
« on: September 04, 2011, 10:49:02 PM »
I'm looking for a way to avoid direct Facebook integration (because they change their standards all the time and can't make up their minds) and I would not mind at all additional portals/things like BigPoint, Twitter, Chrome Web Store, etc. Anything that would get me more players :D

So, what OpenID services/scripts you know and would recommend? Which one supports what? Which one to choose?


I know of these:

Janrain / RPX-NOW
https://rpxnow.com/
http://community.bbgamezone.net/general-game-discussion/social-network-integration-with-rpxnow/
EDIT: they have limit's of max 1000 registered users for a free edition!

DotNetOpenAuth
On the server-side we use DotNetOpenAuth and in the client we use openid-selector http://www.dotnetopenauth.net/ http://code.google.com/p/openid-selector/

Kohana PHP - Auth Admin module
OpenId, Oauth, Facebook, Twitter

I used this module for PointClickPress. Allows for integration into the other services, but also gives you a basic user admin area right out of the box.

I found this list, but it does not look very promising...: http://wiki.openid.net/w/page/12995176/Libraries

Some tutorial: http://devzone.zend.com/article/3581

That one looks decent: http://www.phpkode.com/projects/item/hybridauth/ (http://hybridauth.sourceforge.net/)

That one has some strange requirements: https://github.com/openid/php-openid

Yay! HybridAuth 2.0 is out :)
http://hybridauth.sourceforge.net/index.html

The interface looks more complex than in 1.1.2 but still bearable.

I'm turning into a great fan of HybridAuth.
http://hybridauth.sourceforge.net/index.html

It is rather new, untested product (and as the older people here know I'm not using such cutting edge, unpopular, half broken things by principle, still I made an exception for that one, which is a recommendation on its own I guess :D). It has some problems and typical diseases of a young product, but... It works. And it was designed EXACTLY to cater to my needs as a browser games designer. It is not some crappy OpenID script or social network integration script. No, it is a "connect me with" script. You just edit the config file and enter ALL providers you want and that's it. A total abstraction layer, after config file you don't even know, and don't need to know, if you are connected to Facebook or Twitter or Google or Yahoo!. It just do its things. The newest version has also some functions to post on user walls (Facebook and Twitter I think), but I have not tested it yet. Anyway, it seems to be an overall solution that cater to ALL possible social networks/OpenID related needs of a BBG designer.

Take a look on http://www.loginradius.com/ which supports OpenID and provides login through Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Yahoo and more.

Hi Chris,

I suggest that you have a look at BrowserID. It's a decentralized authentication system based on emails. It is really simple, it's under active development from Mozilla, and it's decentralized nature and simplicity make it a very good alternative to OpenID.

Official website: https://browserid.org/
Demo: http://myfavoritebeer.org/
An example PHP implementatioin: https://github.com/fmarier/browserid-phpdemo
