Craig Box's journeys, stories and notes...


OpenID and MindTouch

The below is all outdated - links updated to archive.org for historical interest.

When I was working at Coreworx in Canada I introduced an internal knowledge base in the form of MindTouch (then DekiWiki). Β I got involved in the community around the project, and ended up meeting the developers behind it in San Diego.

I evaluated it for a project at Symbian, and in order to try and make it suit us better I wrote a module for using OpenID.

Today, MindTouch have published a couple of posts I wrote on the subject, which I am happy to share with you here:

In other news, over the course of the next few weeks, I'll be running a series on the migration of Symbian's LAMP/LTMJ (unfortunately Linux/Tomcat/MySQL/Java doesn't have a vowel in it) hosting servers to Amazon EC2. Stay tuned!

    This is great stuff... just a query to see if this works with Google Apps (Premier) accounts ?

    Try entering "https://www.google.com/a/example.org/o8/ud?be=o8" as your endpoint.

    You can set up discovery docs so that you can just enter "http://example.org" and OpenID will do all the rest; have a look at this post to see how.
