Opauth is a multi-provider authentication framework for PHP, inspired by OmniAuth for Ruby.
Opauth enables PHP applications to do user authentication with ease.
Try out Opauth for yourself at http://opauth.org
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 works well with other PHP applications & frameworks. It is currently supported on:
- vanilla (plain) PHP applications (of course)
- CakePHP (maintained by uzyn)
- CodeIgniter (maintained by destinomultimedia)
- CodeIgniter (maintained by mcatm)
- FuelPHP (maintained by andreoav)
- Yii Framework (maintained by kahwee)
- 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).

(Opauth can be instantiated in your own PHP app, but we will leave that out of this quick start guide)
First, make a copy of opauth config's file by copying or renaming
opauth.conf.phpand make the necessary changes.
Install some Opauth strategies.
Place the strategy files in
For this example, we recommend that you start with Opauth-Facebook:
i. Download the strategy files and place them at
ii. Follow the steps at Opauth-Facebook's README to set up your Faceobok app.
iii. Add the following at
<?php 'Strategy' => array( // Define strategies here. 'Facebook' => array( 'app_id' => 'YOUR APP ID', 'app_secret' => 'YOUR APP SECRET' ), );
Finally, send user to
http://localhost/facebook to authenticate.
Check out the wiki for more in-depth details, especially on how to use Opauth with your own PHP application.
A strategy is a set of instructions that interfaces with respective authentication providers and relays it back to Opauth.
Generic strategy: OAuth
PHP 5 (>= 5.2)
Opauth needs your contributions, especially the following:

v0.4.0 (10 June 2012)
clientGet()for OpauthStrategy class.
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
