Subject draft openid implementation
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2010 14:34:23 GMT

I have a draft implementation of openid for couchdb over at
It's very incomplete but should be enough to start a discussion.

- It "works" with and my wordpress blog but fails on
google and flickr
- It's based on eopenid, which only covers openid 1.1.
- It uses an ets table to maintain state between calls. Not a good
idea, methink.
- It uses its own cookie scheme to maintain authentication. Ideally it
should install
a cookie compatible with couch_httpd_auth, but that requires mapping
an openid to a real user or
creating a real user.

You can quickly test it by browsing to<your

or refer to the readme to install it on your couch

please complain loudly :)
