GitHub OAuth


  1. Download the GitHub OAuth extension and upload the githuboauth folder to the extensions folder.
  2. Enable the extension by selecting GitHub OAuth in the list and choose Enable from the with-selected menu, then click Apply.
  3. Edit the application credentials and scope in the Preferences screen


After installing this extension and providing the required information you can use it by adding the GitHub Authentication event to one of your pages.

The event is triggered automatically and will redirect the user to the GitHub login page. Upon granting permission the user is redirected back to the application and the authentication token is retrieved.

A github event is added to the event XML in your page output. If the authentication is successful, the token is added as attribute.

It is advised to only use this token server-side. Based on the application scope it might provide read/write access to User information and repositories on GitHub. You can either retrieve it from the event list or access the 'tokenvalue from thegithub` session cookie in your custom events.


The plan is to further develop this extension with several events to allow specific user information to be added to the output XML for usage in XSLT templates.
