The IndieAuth Plugin is for Grav CMS. It provides basic support for IndieAuth by adding an authorization and token endpoint for IndieAuth.com to your site. This will enable various IndieWeb services to get access to your site.
Installing the Indieauth plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.
