Opauth is a multi-provider authentication framework for PHP, inspired by OmniAuth for Ruby.
Opauth enables PHP applications to do user authentication with ease.

What is Opauth?
Opauth provides a standardized method for PHP applications to interface with authentication providers.
Opauth as a framework provides a set of API that allows developers to create strategies that work in a predictable manner across PHP frameworks and applications.
Opauth is designed works well with other PHP applications & frameworks.
It is currently supported on vanilla (plain) PHP applications (of course), CakePHP, Yii Framework and more to come.
If your PHP framework of choice is not yet listed, you can still use Opauth like you would a normal PHP component (class).

A strategy is a set of instructions that interfaces with respective authentication providers and relays it back to Opauth.

Opauth is a relatively new framework, having only released its v0.1.0 in late May 2012.
We need your help in expanding the list of available strategies. Refer to strategy contribution guide if you would like to contribute a strategy. Do notify us if you have developed an Opauth strategy and would like it to be listed.

Opauth needs your contributions, especially the following:

v0.3.0 (30 May 2012)
- Some unit testing
- More consistent naming of Strategy's internal properties
- Smarter loading of strategy, able to make a few guesses on where the class file might be at.
v0.2.0 (23 May 2012)
- Opauth is now Composer compatible and listed on Packagist
- Opauth now supports autoloaders
- If a strategy is not autoloaded, Opauth falls back and searches for it at
strategy_dirdefined in config.
- Class name for strategy Foo should now be FooStrategy instead of Foo.
- This is to reduce the likelihood of class name collision due to Opauth not requiring the use of namespace.
- v0.1.0-type class name, ie. Foo, still works, but is now deprecated.
v0.1.0 (22 May 2012)
- Initial release
