PHP OAuth Framework

The goal of this project is to develop a standards compliant OAuth 2 authorization server and resource server.

Package Installation

The framework is provided as a Composer package which can be installed by adding the package to your composer.json file:

    "require": {
        "lncd/OAuth2": "*"

The library features 100% unit test code coverage. To run the tests yourself run phpunit -c build/phpunit.xml.
