Typo Integration with existing application

Hello,

I am thinking about using Typo as a blog for my existing site. My
question is, in my current rails site I already have an authentication
system, acts_as_authenticated, is there anyway to integrate this login
with Typo so that users do not have to log into the blog separately?

Has anyone installed the type of a system before? Also, with
acts_as_authenticated I am also using the authorization plugin to give
roles to users.

Any ideas? Thank you all for your time and I apologize if you have
answered this before but my searches didn’t yield any results in this
topic.

Thanks,
~ Tom C.

Just a brain dump here, my apologies if this is not welcome.

It sounds like a simple single-sign-on behavior would be useful here.
I’m thinking of OpenID[1] and OAuth[2] here.
I’ve been meaning to dig deeply into OAuth but haven’t gotten around
to it. It seems like Typo having the option of being an OAuth provider
could be cool. In your case, it sounds like you would need your
existing site to be the OAuth provider and Typo to be the OAuth
consumer. Then again, I really don’t know anything about OAuth so I
could be waaayy off here.

I hope that’s helpful, but I doubt it. :slight_smile:

[2] http://oauth.net/

Thank you Kevin.

Unfortunately I already have the whole account system working. I was
wondering more if there was like an authentication API for typo?
basically to integrate my current login and the Typo login together. If
this isn’t the best option I would love to hear other options to getting
this done. The main goal is to not have to make users log in twice on
the one site.

Thanks again,
~ Tom
