RPX for Plone: Login to your Plone site with your Twitter, Google or Facebook account!

As I am an advocate for Data Portability and all of it starts at the login, I am happy to announce „plonesocial.auth.rpx“, an authentication plugin for Plone which allows you to login to your Plone site with a variety of third party accounts such as Twitter, facebook, Google etc. or any OpenID.

It is build upon JanRain’s RPX service which makes it easy to use any of those login methods without implementing all of them. You only need to implement one method and this is the RPX method.

plonesocial.auth.rpx does just that.

Here is a little screencast I did showing you how it looks to the user:

There is also an installation documentation, the source code is on bitbucket and here is the Plone product page.

The development of this product was sponsored by COM.lounge.

  1. Seems very useless, I dont see any advantages why I need to pay for something between my server and OpenId providers. Especially when all providers from list recommend use direct access.

  2. Mikhail: Well, for some people it might save money as they don't have to implement all those individual login methods. If we'd live in a perfect world and people would use standards instead of inventing their own protocol things would definitely be easier.

    Ian: thanks

    Marius: Sure :-) The reason it's not in there is that this actually was possible before already. But I just added it in the post.

    Jon: I hope it works for you. It's a first version and I am sure many things can be enhanced or added to it.

    • I unfortunately don’t use it anymore and thus also don’t develop it anymore. The best call would probably then to contact domruf or maybe try to fix it yourself.
