Part of my own project for this week, while taking off for the holiday, was to complete work on an Indieauth endpoint for WordPress.
IndieAuth is layer on top of OAuth 2.0, a standard that grants websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without providing passwords.
OAuth is already being used by a variety of services…Login with Facebook or Login with Google options on sites are usually OAuth based. The difference is that for IndieAuth, users and clients are all represented by URLs.
This is awesome! I can’t wait to use my own website to authenticate myself.
