OpenID Support for Silva

This extension provide a full support for OpenID in Silva. This rely on PluggableAuthService and silva.pas.base.

After installing the extension, users would be able to logon on Silva using an OpenID identity. First, users will have to register, with an form protected by a captcha. This registration step are going to fetch available information about the user from the OpenID provider. After registration, site managers can attributes roles to users, and check information about them on theirs Silva member objects.

This extension require at least Silva 2.1a or higher.


If you installed Silva using buildout, by getting one from the Infrae SVN repository, or creating one using Paster, you should edit your buildout configuration file buildout.cfg to add or edit the following section:


eggs = ... silva.pas.openid

zcml = ... silva.pas.openid

If the section instance wasn't already in the configuration file, pay attention to re-copy values for eggs and zcml from the profile you use.

After you can restart buildout:

$ ./bin/buildout

If you don't use buildout, you can install this extension using easy_install, and after create a file called silva.pas.openid-configure.zcml in the /path/to/instance/etc/package-includes directory. This file will responsible to load the extension and should only contain this:

<include package="silva.pas.openid" />
