Identity ideas

2006-01-26 21:37:58.110589+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

So, I wish I had some hacking time. I'm sitting here working on Maya plug-ins and 3d math (sometimes it's scary when I'm decomposing 4x4 matrices and explaining them to people), but right now I've got a few ideas for things I want to do with web apps:

  1. I want to rework Flutterby to put all of its sub-modules on a framework which uses LID[Wiki] or similar for all user authentication.
  2. I want to expand that notion to do security groups for all entries and photos.

But, most importantly:

  1. I want to hack together a LID[Wiki] implementation that uses a fancy MIME type and a browser launched app to do authentication without the server of the user's LID[Wiki] URL ever knowing the private key of the user.

I understand your reasoning, but make sure you are not re-inventing the wheel.

Part of my reasoning is that I could then integrate in third party tools which do things better than Flutterby does. If I can convince myself to run MediaWiki, there's a patch for that to understand LID[Wiki], I can be integrating in other third party content tools more easily. Heck, I might even go with hacking in third party identity solutions to one of the more popular blogging tools.

Rather than simply pacing the other weblog tools, it could be a way for me to embrace and extend.
