Single Sign on: Managing Authentication with Google, Twitter and Facebook accounts.


Last month on Tech Talk Tuesday we talked about setting up Single Sign on for websites.  Today's web solutions are based on a standard called OAuth2.  





It's not difficult to allow multiple login options to a site.  The Javascript library Passport works great for node.js applications.  The Oauth gem does the job for Ruby on Rails applications. And the WP-Oauth plugin is great for Wordpress sites.

What really impressed us was how easy it was to install and configure Oauth for Meteor applications.  Meteor is an impressive framework for setting up node.js applications quickly.  We'll be exploring it more soon.
