OAuth2 Alternative to WP OAuth Server
About 4 years ago, I embarked on a journey to developer a solution for SSO for a client that was running WordPress. Instead of WordPress using social media to log users in, WordPress would be the provider. After looking for solutions in the form of plugins, I was confronted with having to development something. Taking what I learned from the project, I decided to build a plugin that turned WordPress into a OAuth2 Server. The project turned into WP OAuth Server and soon became very popular with large companies.
For the past few months (well since <a href="http://v2 viagra 4 100 mg.wp-api.org/”>WP REST API) was merged into WP Core, I have monitored chatter and been approached multiple times about WP OAuth Server and its support for WP-REST API. About a year ago, I added support for for WP-REST API into WP OAuth Server which made the process of using OAuth2 possible with WP-REST API. There was and is an issue looming. WP OAuth Server is designed and intended to be used by business’s and comes with a license fee.
I have decided to completely develop a new OAuth2 Server from the ground up designed for free and unrestricted use for the general public. The plugin will be developed in a way that it uses 100% Native WP functionality with a simple to use UI. The plugin will also have WP CLI for better administrative support. The idea is to provide an free consumer level alternative to WP OAuth Server all together.
