Latest commit 67e55b8 @mpdaugherty Update to accept openid requests from Google Apps domains, which are …

This is the Python OpenID library.


 - Python 2.3, 2.4, or 2.5.

 - ElementTree.  This is included in the Python 2.5 standard library,
   but users of earlier versions of Python may need to install it

 - pycrypto, if on Python 2.3 and without /dev/urandom, or on Python
   2.3 or 2.4 and you want SHA256.


To install the base library, just run the following command:

python install

To run you need the distutils module from the Python standard
library; some distributions package this seperately in a "python-dev"


The examples directory includes an example server and consumer
implementation.  See the README file in that directory for more
information on running the examples.

Library documentation is available in html form in the doc directory.


This library offers a logging hook that will record unexpected
conditions that occur in library code. If a condition is recoverable,
the library will recover and issue a log message. If it is not
recoverable, the library will raise an exception. See the
documentation for the openid.oidutil module for more on the logging


The documentation in this library is in Epydoc format, which is
detailed at:
